Storyline

"Remember" is the contemporary story of Zev, who discovers that the Nazi guard who murdered his family some 70 years ago is living in America under an assumed identity. Despite the obvious challenges, Zev sets out on a mission to deliver long-delayed justice with his own trembling hand. What follows is a remarkable cross-continent road-trip with surprising consequences. Written by 72nd Venice International Film Festival

Trivia

The melody Zev plays on the grand piano in Kurlander #4's house is "Isoldes Liebestod" composed by Wagner, Adolf Hitler's favorite composer. See more »

Goofs

The security guard pulls the pistol out and asks if it's a Glock. The Glock design is very distinctive, and unique; so anyone who knows what a Glock is doesn't have to ask. Also, "Glock" is engraved on the slide. See more »

Tension builds in a well-told tale
6 November 2015 | by (Western Washington) – See all my reviews

I'd caution people to not read any of these reviews that contain spoilers, because they will rob you of a captivating movie experience. This is one movie, believe me, where you do not want to know how it comes out until the movie itself has a chance to tell its tale, much Like "Crying Game" some years ago. I cannot understand people who do this, self-appointed film "experts" who have decided that you do not deserve to let the movie speak for itself. They're like people who blab about surprise parties, or who say "Now watch this!" loudly in a theater. This movie is as well-written and directed as anything you're likely to see this year, and to know too much beforehand robs you of a rare cinematic experience.
