Excellent movie
20 November 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Lessons in Forgetting is a very heart-rending story that follows the path of a father who is out to investigate his daughters death.

Through the unusual journey he comes across many stories that tells the story of his daughter; a road he wished he had traveled earlier to know his daughter better.

Kudos to the director to stick to the novel and has beautifully adapted the novel into a movie.

The movie is well crafted and does shows signs of the director as a person who could handle such complicate story with ease.

This movie is worth a watch for film lovers.
