But he is puzzled when several patients around him die unexpectedly. Is it a delusion of his disturbed mind or are murders really being committed? This will be the object of Charles' most difficult investigation ever. Written by Guy Bellinger

If you liked Memento, you will like this
30 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not as exotic as Memento, and not the same kind of movie experience, but this movie explores the other, much more common, memory loss that so many of us will experience, or will watch our loved ones experience.

As his memory worsens and as his ability to distinguish reality from delusion slips away Charles Boyer, former police inspector, thinks he may be seeing something nobody else is. The question is can he make anyone believe him? Can he even convince himself before he succumbs completely and finally to Alzheimer's?

André Dussollier's portrayal of a formally brilliant man losing, it and knowing he is losing it, projects real pain and fear. Its hard to watch him struggle trying to remember, trying to clear his head, to even understand his own notes. Meanwhile all the caretakers, and his own son, treat him like a child and try to medicate him into submission...

This movie is a brilliant exploration of aging, memory, identity, and the inevitable end of life we all face.
