Remember is the contemporary story of Zev, who discovers that the Nazi guard who murdered his family some 70 years ago is living in America under an assumed identity. Despite the obvious challenges, Zev sets out on a mission to deliver long-delayed justice with his own trembling hand.

Christopher Plummer should win an Oscar for this. Some critics have called it manipulative and borderline exploitation but I think what this film achieves is exactly what Hitchcock did so well and what this film resembles, in the best sense. Without a doubt, Egoyan's best film in years.
Despite its' ridiculous and unbelievable conclusion there are many pleasures to be taken in this dubious effort by Egoyan. The scripting is weak but the lead turn by Christopher Plummer as the Alzheimer's afflicted would-be hitman is quite extraordinary. Solid camerawork by Paul Sarossy making the most of Ontario locations. Unfortunately the Egoyan drought is not quite over yet.
Après son déplorable film précédent, Egoyan a repris en partie ses esprits, déléguant à son personnage principal, interprété par Christopher Plummer, son énergique quête de la mémoire, cette fois-ci bien loin des racines arméniennes, mais dans les tréfonds de l'Holocauste qui risque de se retrouver bientôt aux bans de l'oubli avec la disparition des derniers représentants de l'abomination nazie.www.cinefiches.com
I have seen much better movies about Holocaust but this one has nothing more to say, bad acting, and bad screenplay… very cliché! I think movie makers should go for the Holocaust that’s happening right now in Palestine or Syria!
