There have been a lot of movies about the Holocaust in the last couple of years, some very good. But none have had the suspenseful screenplay of Remember. This movie is one of the best efforts from director Atom Egoyan since he showed such promise with The Sweet Hereafter in the late 1990s. Perhaps the secret here was his using someone else's screenplay rather than his own.Excellently acted when is Christopher Plummer not excellent? , staged, and filmed, and edited down to a taut 95 minutes, this film succeeds not "merely" as a Holocaust reminder but as a self-contained <more>
thriller: an engrossing and ultimately thoroughly satisfying piece of cinema.
Summary: Jewish Genocide Retribution with an Armenian Twist (by barev-85094)
EGOYAN S "REMEMBER", memorable at Venice 72by Alex Deleonian Closet Armenian Viewed at the Venice Film Festival, September 2015Atom Egoyan typically deals with Armenian topics such as the 1915 Genocide of the Armenians in Turkey Ararat, 2002 so it is not altogether surprising that he now turns his attention to the parallel experience of the Jewish genocide know as "The Holocaust" -- and does so with a vengeance!"Remember" is the fantastic story of Zev, a 90 year old Jewish gentleman who discovers that the Nazi guard who murdered his family some 70 years ago is <more>
living in America under an assumed name. Despite the obvious physical challenges involved including a severely failing memory, but prodded along by fellow Jewish old-age home denizen Martin Landau 87 confined to a wheelchair -- but with a razor sharp mind -- Zev Plummer sets out on a mission to deliver long-delayed justice with his own trembling hand.Coming late in the festival, on day number ten, regarding Egoyan's edgy Post-Holocaust drama one can only say "Better Late than never" -- and even if it was oddly overlooked in the peculiar Venice final awards, it was far better than the winners, marked another major milestone in the Canadian Armenian director's filmography, and will go down as another personal triumph for 85 year old actor Christopher Plummer, playing a ninety year old Auschwitz avenger who will end up avenging himself -- in a dazzling shocker of a double twist at the end.Plummer's Geritolic avenger's trail takes him clean across the continent tracking down a hit list drawn up by Landau of closet Nazis with the name of Kurlander, only one of whom is the final target. Along the way we run into several maddening dead ends and Plummer, almost by accident, is forced to shoot down a closet Nazi in a trash trailer, but this is not the former C.C. guard he's looking for. A slow buildup to a stunning conclusion at an upscale villa on Lake Tahoe left the A.M. press screening audience gasping for breath, and will surely stun more audiences later today at public screenings. Plummer is beyond description as a doddering aged dementia victim with gun in hand, and the ingenious script by Benjamin August is a true mind bender which puts new "english" on an oft told tale of the hunting down of evil Krauts.Egoyan's mise en scene is mature perfection and the cast featuring 87 year old Martin Landau evil sidekick of James Mason in Hitchcock's North by NW, 1959 as a wheelchair bound Auschwirz survivor with an Attitude and a mission, Swiss elder star Bruno Ganz as a mistaken ex-Nazi, and Jürgen Prochnow Das Boot as the final incredibly cynical Concentration Camp killer on Landau's vendetta hit list, are all excellent in their roles, while children's cameos along the way add a disarming air of innocence to this deadly tale. Regarding his motivation for making this film Mr. Egoyan, referring to the advanced age of Holocaust survivors still alive stated: "This is the last time we can tell this story in the present tense. In another 10 years it would have to be a period piece," NOTE: Plummer also played a major role in Egoyan's Armenian Genocide epic, "Ararat", 2002. This is the kind of film one can write a book about, and will undoubtedly occupy a full chapter when the book on his work is written. BRAVO -- Shenurhagalem Atom Egoyan! You made my week in Venice. Alex on the Lido, September 2015.
I pretty much got this movie randomly without really knowing what it was going to be, most movies i just watch in the background while working on my laptop. others i just stop after 10-20 minutes because they are too bad.This movie somehow draws you in, the plot is exceptional and although the "hero" is a very old man it turns into a real thriller at times.Actors are brilliant and the twist at the end was just the perfect end to a masterful movie.I can't believe this movie hasn't make more waves, it is truly the best movie of 2015 in my opinion.
Tension builds in a well-told tale (by jack-78597)
I'd caution people to not read any of these reviews that contain spoilers, because they will rob you of a captivating movie experience. This is one movie, believe me, where you do not want to know how it comes out until the movie itself has a chance to tell its tale, much Like "Crying Game" some years ago. I cannot understand people who do this, self-appointed film "experts" who have decided that you do not deserve to let the movie speak for itself. They're like people who blab about surprise parties, or who say "Now watch this!" loudly in a theater. This <more>
movie is as well-written and directed as anything you're likely to see this year, and to know too much beforehand robs you of a rare cinematic experience.
I began watching Remember with no great expectations; I thought I'd watch the first 20 minutes or so, and if it seemed promising, I'd come back to it at a later time perhaps.You will already be aware of the plot/story-line from other reviews etc...; but for those who have not yet seen it, it has a beautiful way of drawing you in somehow. Beautifully written, yet powerful; I found I was becoming so immersed in the movie that there would be no 'coming back to it later'.Casting and acting are excellent all-round, in what turned out to be perhaps one of the best films I've <more>
seen over the past 18 months or so.There's very little else I can say regarding the film other than 'watch it'... it's excellent.9/10
Atom Egoyan in fine form directing a fascinating story of revenge and identity loss. Christopher Plummer plays the main character with the sense of consistent and strong characterization that he has done so well for over forty years. This is definitely one of his more convincing roles, and since the focus is on his character the entire time, he truly had to carry this picture along. He does so with complete conviction and confidence.What makes the story so interesting and keeps it moving are the separate stops on the journey of the main character. In each place he visits there are additional <more>
members of the supporting cast introduced, each of whom add a uniqueness and individuality to the scenes that play out. Dean Norris certainly plays an intensely well suited and memorable role. Egoyan keeps up his trademark use of strange and unusual locations, and any fan of the director will not be disappointed.There is a great twist in this story, one of the better ones I've seen in a while. Some good advice would be to not read any of the spoilers, although the description of how the plot changes would take up several paragraphs. You're better off watching the movie and enjoying Mychael Danna's brilliant soundtrack as an added bonus.
"Remember" marks a return to form of sorts for acclaimed director Atom Egoyan, whose last few movies have been mired in a haze of mediocre uncertainty and even irrelevance, something that you would not associate at all with him.My favourite Atom Egoyan movie will always be "The Sweet Hereafter". "Exotica" was perhaps a signature film, but "The Sweet Hereafter" remains, for me at least, a true marker of this talent and vision.But "Remember" ranks up there with his other films, assembled into a solid body of work, generally <more>
speaking."Remember" is a fascinating movie about living with the ghosts of the past, the scores we have not yet settled and the debts we have not yet paid at the end of our lives. Worst, all these unsettling things that we barely remember or not at all.The movie is anchored by an enthralling and mesmerizing performance courtesy of Christopher Plummer, who in his 80's still shows why he is as good as he is, and that even at that age he is at, he runs circles around most of today's movie stars in terms of acting quality.This is a small, out of the way, low-budget movie, with a sad but important story to tell. So if you have the time and opportunity to see it I would advise you to do so. One of the best movies this year, and definitely one of the best leading actor performances of the year, at the hands of Christopher Plummer!
Although I always thought The Sweet Hereafter 1997 was an absolute masterpiece, I never had the opportunity to see a film Atom Egoyan made since it. Remember 2015 is his latest effort, and it's a strong film, among the best of the year. Certainly it's worthy of its nomination for Best Motion Picture at the Canadian Screen Awards, up against the year's great film, Room.Remember tells the story of Holocaust survivors Zev Gutman and Max Rosenbaum Christopher Plummer and the supremely talented Martin Landau . We have had a lot of films about elderly Holocaust survivors over the <more>
years, and it won't be long before we can no longer have films about survivors set in the present, so the opportunity is now to explore new themes. This one has what seems like a basic revenge story- Zev has vowed to take revenge on a Nazi officer, believed to have immigrated to North America under the name Rudy Kurlander. He tracks down four Rudy Kurlanders in the US and Canada, and points a gun at each to seek the true identity of the Nazi officer.From a storytelling point of view, it is a little artificial that he has to see all four before he finds the answer to the mystery. If the first guy had been the right man, we would have had a short film. Also, it seems like a coincidence all four were involved in the Holocaust or World War II- not one of them was a civilian who wasn't in a camp? Still, the film builds up its intense atmosphere, aided by a fitting score and adept acting and pacing. Even if the Holocaust was the worst crime in history, whether it justifies murder in revenge is a moral dilemma, and one may wonder if Zev will or should go through with it. The twist at the end is shocking and unexpected. It leaves Remember with a memorable impact.
Christopher Plummer as The Terminator (by MoviePopcornCostsTooMuch)
An elegant film. So simply yet magnificently told. I haven't been as surprised by an ending since the Sixth Sense - I was truly shocked, the ending alone is worth seeing this film. I have never liked one Egoyan film. The fact that Egoyan didn't write this probably helped. To be honest, the script isn't that great and is kind of a rip off of The Terminator - Arnie goes and just starts killing everyone in L.A. named Sarah Connor, Plummer tries to kill everyone named Rudy Kurlander. The story is actually quite simple - written by a casting director from Fear Factor?? Ahhh, not sure <more>
how this ended up in Egoyan's hands but luckily it did. And Egoyan cast fellow Canadian Christopher Plummer. A wonderful pairing. Plummer's performance is so subtle, nuanced and elegant, he is sure to be nominated. The two simple moments in the film where he just sits and plays piano are so moving. The scene with Dean Norris Breaking Bad is a short film unto itself and worth the price of admission. Best movie I've seen in 2015 - and it's December. This was a true surprise. Hopefully this gets Egoyan back into some bigger budget fare with bigger actors again. If Egoyan is going to continue writing, he should just write to sell or produce. He should only direct scripts he hasn't written.
