A young man, who doesn't appear to have much of a life, whose mother is seriously ill, works as a toll-booth collector but is not that great at it, by some circumstances, become obsessed with the Jewish faith and the Holocaust and gets deeply involved in documenting testimony from Jews concentration camps survivors, with mixed results. His involvement with the daughter of one of the survivors is interesting and brought life to the script, and the revelations of the survivors, many of them actual (real) survivors, was very effective. Some have called this film a "psychological thriller," but I would not go that far. I found the film interesting. Not that good, but not that bad either. Just satisfactory. I am glad I saw it, but I would not recommend it to anyone, saying, "Hey, you have to watch this movie (The Memory Thief) it is really good." because, to me, it wasn't.
