Rewind someone else's memory
16 September 2006 | by (Lleida, Catalonia) – See all my reviews

This movie deals with death and digital afterlife.

A woman dies in her forties but leaves hundreds of video and cassette tapes of her life recorded. The main character is an ex boyfriend from time past who watches and listens to every tape to cope with her death and his own sorrow. He amongst other boyfriends appears on the tapes. And through the tapes he gets to know her and even himself much better than he did before.

The originality of this movie resides in the technical aspects. So when the action takes place inside her flat -the same flat where he is viewing the tapes- the image blurs into blue and white as if we were watching a surveillance camera, but when we listen to her tapes we do get a proper flashback of the place she was in.

The soundtrack, though minimalist, adds up to the nauseating atmosphere of nostalgia with an unmistakable repetitive tune.

But in the end the fragmented bits and pieces collected together don't make much sense. This movie lacks warmth and does not charm the viewer.
