That scene, shot with a filter at a lush, beautiful waterfall which John Boorman would die for, moves the film into an even farther-out fantasy level and introduces a character which seems to have nothing to do with the rest of the film, unless you consider it one of Boonmee's past lives.

I don't wanna come off and say that this movie is pretentious or anything - because it may very well speak to a lot of people, particularly people who believe in karma, reincarnation -- even though there's practically no mention of reincarnation in this film at all.
As a result, the film's visual style and the characters' in-universe approach to the more bizarre elements in it come across as the film's greatest strength as it segues quite readily from supposedly unremarkable weirdness into lurid fables.
