With the aid of a fellow Auschwitz survivor and a hand-written letter, an elderly man with dementia goes in search of the person he believes to be responsible for the death of his family in the death camp to kill him himself.
"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

Where's my wife?
Mr. Guttman! You can't be sneaking up on me like that!
Where is my wife? Where is Ruth?
I'm sorry, Mr. Guttman, your wife passed away about a week ago.
Oh. I'm sorry. Who are you?
My name's Paula. I was Mrs. Guttman's nursing aide. Your family asked me to stay on for another week or two. Let's get some breakfast. You'll be feeling better after breakfast.

WW2 really sticks out in my mind. As far as I'm concerned that was the world gone mad. Hard to tell if we've progressed these days though, but I still don't know anyone personally today that would conform to that kind of madness.
This film explores so many different perspectives in such an interesting way, it's hard not to be overwhelmed with emotion that extends in every direction.
It's a truly amazing story, acted out brilliantly by the two seasoned lead actors, with a surprisingly suspenseful pace that keeps you hooked.
Congratulations to everyone involved and a special tip of the hat to Christopher Plummer, this is a masterpiece.
