Jacob Olsen’s review:
I wonder, how many can honestly say after watching this, that they didn't spend at least a few minutes trying to pick that one memory?
It's hard to review this film shortly after watching it for the first time. It's beautiful in so many ways. For instance I really like that they aren't simply able to pull that single memory from people's minds, but have to recreate it manually. I like that they keep scenes from actual lives on video cassettes but the memories are created on film. I like that the people working there, formerly unable to help themselves has to to spend eternity helping others. There isn't a single character that I didn't associate with. And I simply loved the two older ladies. Finally, the part with the two men sharing a relationship with the same woman is handled really well.
I sometimes kick myself mentally for not having seen this and that film way earlier. But why do that? I've decided now to be happy knowing that I still have lots and lots of brilliant films yet to experience.
