This film tells the story of a successful executive in an advertising film, who notices that his memory is slipping away. He and his wife faces huge challenges to adjust to his new functional level.
I bought the DVD of "Memories of Tomorrow" years ago but haven't watched it until now. I wish I watched it earlier, because it is superb. Ken Watanabe's acting is very good, he convinces the viewers about his poor memory, his fear and confusion that he does not perform as he used to. In the second half of the film, the film focuses more on the wife. She is superb as an ever so supportive wife who is strained to the core, yet remains strong and positive. The film really highlights the butterfly effect of memory loss, both on the sufferer and the carers. Moreover, the film has a strong feel of realism, and events are not exaggerated at all. It touches me heart and I hope it will touch other people too.
