Jack Clayton यूनाइटेड किंगडम, 1992

Richmond Hill's rating of the film Memento Mori

As literal as adaptations can be in the steam rolling of nuance and exploratory thought - no exception here with the novel's existential ending slightly nullified by a slightly too-straight treatment up to that point - this is nevertheless a generally pleasing whimsy, richly fruited by character acting and less fey than other adaptations from Spark.
