Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Réalisé par Michel Gondry
États-Unis, 2004
Drame, Romantique, Science-fiction


Joel est effondré de découvrir que sa petite amie Clementine a fait effacer tous ses souvenirs de leur relation tumultueuse. Anéanti, il prend contact avec l’inventeur de la procédure, le Dr Howard Mierzwiak, pour qu’il extirpe de sa mémoire tout ce qui se rattachait à Clementine.

Notre opinion

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.

Avis des critiques

Eerie and surreal, charming and tragic, the movie wrestles with the fundamental instability of all human relationships, achieving a wise and powerful vision that is — ironically for a tale about fading memories — unforgettable.

Eternal Sunshine is immensely moving for the way it depicts consciousness itself as a constant negotiation of pain and pleasure—the gradual slippage of memory removes essential parts of our personality.

In Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind [Gondry] clearly surpasses himself. For the first time he delivers an ending that doesn’t feel like either a cop-out or a throwaway, even if it’s Hollywood to the core. He’s also figured out a structure that perfectly matches the emotional tenor of his theme and isn’t just an amusement-park ride that can be forgotten as soon as it’s over.
