Brilliant documentary
19 April 2020 | by stepoff-63250See all my reviews

Kandel's warm, colorful personality, along with the fascinating and important subject matter, provided the potential for a top-quality documentary - which the filmmaker realized to the full. Brilliant editing keeps things flowing while still leaving space for reflective moments. The science of memory is also cleverly interweaved into the tragic experiences of Kandel's family in Vienna during the Nazi era. One of the best science documentaries ever.
