Brilliant
27 February 2000 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

Most of the other 'comments' I have read missed the point of the movie. One person had the nerve to refer to the lead charachtor as arrogant. My friend, that was hope.

I am a person who has lived through this most devastating of disorders, both brothers had Duchenne muscular dystrophy and are now dead. 'When You Remember Me' captures the soul of a person with DMD in that nomatter what happens, make the best of it. No matter what a person may appear to be/have(disability/color of skin/sex, illness) look at the person inside.

This movie is both insperational and depressing. It must be noted that this is a true story (dramatised) and that people live this every day.
