Storyline

She often repeating herself and small lapses in her memory are the first indications that Mora Carlisle-Nevsky's family have that something is not quite right. Only in her mid-fifties, she is eventually diagnosed with a degenerative case of Alzheimer's, which will gradually make her brain function deteriorate and which will take her life in approximately three years. Despite their family line being predisposed to the disease, each of her family members takes the news in a different way. Her husband, Alex Nevsky, vows to take care of her without outside professional help, no matter what it takes. Her older son, Nick Nevsky, a physician, has a more matter-of-fact and pragmatic view of what his mother requires.

Tasteful, Simple - Not Bad at All
24 March 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sure, you could call this a poor man's version of Sarah Polley's masterpiece, Awawy From Her, but this film deserves a chance on its own. Taken as it is - an earlier, relatively low-budget, made-for-TV feature - Scar Tissue isn't half bad. The script is tasteful and believable, and Roberta Maxwell and Shawn Doyle in the main roles are both excellent. Sure, it's predictable and the weepy Hollywood score doesn't help, but it's also engaging, touching and simple in the right ways...especially given the fact that there's only 3 primary locations and six main actors. This film furthers its significance in Canadian cinema by having Ignatief's '93 novel as its inspiration. Despite the notable actors and source material, it seems to have dropped off the face of the earth. It was released on DVD in 2002 but is increasingly hard to track down. While it may not be worth the premium prices to dig one up, it's definitely better than the majority of made for TV fare.
