Storyline

Although barely 30, Claire believes she is showing the first symptoms of Alzheimer's disease, a condition from which her mother has recently died. Her sister, Nathalie, is certain that her memory loss, caused by a lightning strike, is temporary. In the clinic where she is being treated, Claire is attracted to Philippe, a man who is still traumatized after a car accident in which his wife and child were both killed. In spite of their personal tragedies, Claire and Philippe fall in love. When Philippe recovers, Claire moves into his home. Then Claire's condition takes a turn for the worse... Written by Polly_Kat

remembering the good things!
15 April 2003 | by (germany) – See all my reviews

a great film! such a dark subject photographed in coloured pictures. i loved this rich detailed film without the expected stereotypes and a touching lovestory. it´s sad but it isn´t hopeless. the actors are so convincing and you start thinking about a disease you thought only old people could get. brilliant, that i hadn´t have the feeling of being voyeuristic! SEE IT: and think about it.
