Ripped Memories revealed
12 March 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Clearly a great deal of thought has gone into the formation of characters and plot in this film. The viewer is cleverly introduced to the varied personalities of the main characters in the opening scenes through their relationships and interaction with Samantha ('older' played by Deborah Breunerand and the 'younger' played by Debbie Rochon). After this carefully constructed process, which justifiably takes up about a third of the film time, we move to the plot background including a murder and the possible relevance of Samantha's suspected split personality disorder to the crime. We get drawn into the story through dialogue involving the principal characters which further develops the insight into their personalities especially those of Samantha and the young Brandon, ably portrayed by Jesse Kozel. This is the first time that I have seen Jesse in a film and he created a very favourable impression in the way that he handled a lead role.

The momentum of the story is maintained throughout by the conversations between (a) older Samantha (who is not as crazy and delusional as people may think) and the self interested older Brandon and (b) younger Samantha and the detective investigating the murder. These scenes are neatly incorporated in order to provide additional information to the viewer about the background to the situation which is developing at appropriate moments as it involves the overlapping relationship triangles leading to the murder and cover up.

Debbie Rochon is one of the most reliable and consistently good actresses in the business regardless of the size and type of role that she is required to perform. She has the leading role in this film which presents her with an abundance of screen time and thereby the opportunity to display her talent to full effect. Debbie is perfectly cast in this particular role - a truly fine performance.

Another familiar name in the cast list is Tara Cardinal, as Samantha's friend. Tara is in sizzling form in one particular scene where her separate relationships with three other characters are skilfully developed in rapid fire succession within a few minutes timespan. Tara certainly demonstrates in her performance throughout the film that she can comfortably and competently handle roles other than the action girl ones that she is better known for.

Two other participants who caught my eye were Elina Madison and Charlotte Gallagher. The latter has a limited amount of movie experience but her performance indicates that, like Jesse Kozel, we have an actress who has the potential for a bright future in the business. She made the optimum use of the time she was on screen to display her talent and catch attention. Elina is an experienced actress with a long list of credits to her name but this is the first of her films that I have seen. I will definitely be on the lookout for more of her work in the future.

I was rather surprised to find out form IMDb that this was Marc Fortin's first film as director, producer, writer or editor (a true all rounder) as I expected the film, judging by the overall quality, to have been made people with more experience in all four areas. Marc deserves to be awarded a deserved accolade for his work on this occasion by firstly coming up with a good, interesting story line and assembling a good blend of acting talent to suit the role requirements right up to the completion of the film project which I personally enjoyed and appreciated. All concerned are a credit to independent film making.
