Short Memory Directed by Eduardo de Gregorio

What are people saying?

  • Francisco R.'s rating of the film Short Memory

    Spectacular and very literate direction by De Gregorio, it reminded me of late Kubrick at times, if he were working on a modest budget of course. I found it a very stimulating viewing for its eclectic narration, it's adroit mixture of past and present, and Jacques Rivette (!!) in his only supporting role, which of course plays to perfection alongside the lovely and always awesome Hermine Karagheuz.
