Storyline

In the near future or an alternate reality, there are memory detectives, people who have the ability to enter other people's electronically-aided memories. They often are used to resolve psychological conflicts, and sometimes to exonerate someone from a crime. John was at one time the top in this field, but he has been recovering from the death of his wife, and a stroke. To get back into work the head of the small firm he works for offers him what is supposed to be a simple job - getting 16-year-old Anna to start eating again. However, the "simple job" turns into his most challenging. Written by Qfal

Goofs

Near the end, Anna's desperate call to John for help was not used in John's defense of the charges. The time of the call and the call itself would have at least given justification for John being in the house. The call should have at least been explained away or covered in some manner. See more »

Quotes

[the funny thing about memory, is it can't be fully trusted. And yet, in the end, it's the only truth we have. And no matter how painful it is, you have got to look at the truth. Because sometimes it's the only thing that can save you. It's the only thing that can set you free]

An intriguing psychological thriller completely ruined by the ending!
8 June 2014 | by karan-virgo92See all my reviews

I like the idea of reading one memories. Although an old concept from cinematic point of view, I have always found a memory reader interesting, because memories are not a recollection of events. It is an interpretation. Hence, the concept of a memory reader is a trickier than one would expect.

Most of the films and TV shows get this concept completely wrong. Anna was different. It actually showed how memories are interpretations of past events. The psychiatrist in a bid to find out the deep rooted issues of the teenage girl realizes how her memory cannot be completely trusted to figure out time-line of events that made her psychologically disturbed.

The movie was extremely engaging till the climax ruined it all. I would try not to give away any spoilers but all I can say is the ending is utterly insipid, lack-lustrous and a total spoilsport to what could have been an inspiring psychological thriller. It seems as if the director Jorge Dorado did not wish to provide a twist in the end but did it just for the sake of giving one! What a sad sad way to make a disaster!

Do not waste time on this movie. Period. Exclamation mark.
