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

C'est extraordinaire: plein de beauté, amour, psychologie, et realité, mais attention, un peu deprimant.
31 March 2003 | by (VA) – See all my reviews

Se Souvenir des Belles Choses: i can only even begin to describe the greatness of this movie and the impact it has made in mind. After months of anticipation, i saw this film in Richmond, Virginia, as a part of the 11th annual VCU French Film Festival at the Byrd Theatre. Warning: i cried for a good 45 minutes.

This is not to say the film was depressing. It was simply so moving.

With Isabelle Carré portraying the lead in brilliant form, Se Souvenir des Belles Choses (lit.: To Remember Beautiful Things) offers a truly amazing view into the world of mental hospitals, specifically dealing with memory loss and Alzheimer's patients. Two of these patients share a heartbreaking love story when symptoms worsen and improve.

Technically speaking, the film is a masterpiece. Do your best to see this one.
