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

Goofs

Max (Landau) speaks with a degraded German accent from having lived in the US for so long. He still consistently pronounces "w" as "v" and "s" as "z", the way a German would. The notable exception is "Wiesenthal", which a German would pronounce as "vee-zen-tall". But Max always pronounces it the American way, as "wee-zen-thal". See more »

A wonder
5 March 2016 | by russa_07See all my reviews

I didn't have many expectations when I started watching the movie. I am particularly interested in WWII movies, and I have watched many movies that deal with the Nazi period. However, this one goes beyond that typical movie. We get to know a man with dementia trying to avenge the death of his family. We start off an interesting idea. The hour went by quickly, as we go into the depth of this revenge. However, it is the ending that takes it all. It left me speechless and at the same time, left me thinking, reflecting on every character and situation. If you're in doubt whether to watch it or not, let me advise you: watch it, you won't regret it. However, be ready to explore some deep thoughts afterward.
