Synopsis

From the pen of Charlie Kaufman (Being John Malkovich) comes the story of a heartbroken man who decides to erase from his mind all the memories of his love, only to find that he wants to keep them after all.

Our take

A fragmented, non-linear look at the elusive and peculiar nature of memory, this gorgeous and romantic, high-concept yet lo-fi/sci-fi cult classic could only come from the genius mind of Charlie Kaufman. Aching and ambitious filmmaking, of a kind rarely replicated.
