Remember

3.5 out of 5 stars

Atom Egoyan directs effortlessly in a piece of drama that throws dementia into a hunt for Nazi criminals. Christopher Plummer and Martin Landau are great and manage to convince me to overlook some questionable plausibility issues. With a few twists and turns, both in the story and the cameos in supporting roles, the thriller is as fun as something like the first Taken movie and delivers Egoyan’s (and probably) Plummer’s most entertaining in ages. If, like me, you think you are watching a geriatric Memento at the beginning, you should be pleasantly surprised by the end of the film. Isn’t low expectation sometimes a marvellous thing?
