Storyline

Haunted by a traumatic history, photographer Kevin Wolfe (Christopher Denham) struggles to systematically forget all his bad memories, but erasing his past threatens to consume his future. Kevin is obsessed with finding a girl who can help him forget his unpleasant past. However, all his encounters with the opposite sex inevitably go afoul, creating more awkward experiences than he can cope with. As the rejections mount, Kevin's futile search for happiness and love becomes overwhelmingly turbulent, forcing him to take desperate measures. Shot in a variety of NYC locales, from Hell's Kitchen to Greenpoint, Forgetting the Girl is a gritty vision of the city and its denizens. The tightly-woven drama blends recollections with reality to craft an intense character study of the psychologically-scarred protagonist. As beautiful as it is dark, the tense narrative slowly boils under the surface until it unleashes an unsettling climax that will not be easily forgotten. Written by FTG

An Unusual Story
8 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Haunted by a traumatic history, photographer Kevin Wolfe (Christopher Denham) struggles to systematically forget all his bad memories, but erasing his past threatens to consume his future.

You know, there have been half unicorn, half Pegasus ideas for a long, long time... not least of which is "My Little Pony".

I watched this film thinking it would be a horror picture. Turns out it really is not... at all. There is one brief gore moment, but overall the focus is on a man's failure to maintain long-term relationships... and then how he forgets them.

The film is beautifully shot, and oddly engrossing. While I could not really recommend it, there was nothing to dislike either... and it was quite a piece of art.
