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

The best movie of 2015
27 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

I pretty much got this movie randomly without really knowing what it was going to be, most movies i just watch in the background while working on my laptop. others i just stop after 10-20 minutes because they are too bad.

This movie somehow draws you in, the plot is exceptional and although the "hero" is a very old man it turns into a real thriller at times.

Actors are brilliant and the twist at the end was just the perfect end to a masterful movie.

I can't believe this movie hasn't make more waves, it is truly the best movie of 2015 in my opinion.
