Death Drive tells the story of a young man, who after emerging from a pool of water scrambles to piece together the previous night before embarking on a series of psychedelic adventures that reveal his darkest internal instinct.
"Vergiss mein ich" is director Jan Schomburg's newest film 3 years after "Über uns das All". The main character here is played by Maria Schrader ("Aimée & Jaguar"). Her husband is portrayed by Johannes Krisch (Foreign Language Oscar nominee "Revanche") and Sandra Hüller and Ronald Zehrfeld have an established body of work as well and should be known at least to cinephiles in the German-language countries.
The central character of the film is a successful female feminist writer, who starts losing her memory due to a brain disease. What I liked about it was that sometimes there were situations which were actually sad, but you couldn't help but smile. Lots of unintentional comedy in here, such as the scene where she says that Roman has a girlfriend or talks about her cheating as if it was the most normal thing on the planet. Or is it? After all, her man and best friend did it as well in the past and they were completely healthy and would understand the consequences. Schomburg did a good job writing and directing the film and the only big criticism I have is a subjective one. I am just not a big fan of Maria Schrader at all and to me she is nobody who can carry a drama like this convincingly. That's why the low rating. If you appreciate her more in her earlier roles, you will probably like this one more than I did.
There's really nothing truly wrong with any of the other aspects here.
