Product Description

Amazon.ca

If ever a movie was made for DVD format, this is it. A mind-bending psychological thriller of the highest order, Memento is the rare flick that begs to be watched repeatedly. Writer-director Christopher Nolan (Insomnia, Following) shakes up the concepts of time, narrative, and audience perception in a film that happens in chronologically reverse order. Leonard (Guy Pearce) survives an assault that leaves his wife dead, only to find himself with a faulty memory: he can remember all the details of his life before the assault, but can't "make new memories, everything fades." Quickly. This impairment, along with his unstoppable drive to find his wife's killer, brings Leonard into contact with people who don't always have his best interests at heart.

Though this remarkable story is told in reverse, Nolan's innovative direction maintains a rapid forward momentum that keeps the viewer on the edge of his seat, waiting for new revelations. Memento is an unsettling, eminently engrossing examination of how memory (or the lack thereof) affects our lives and our relationships. It's unique in that it reveals more layers with every viewing. And Pearce's portrayal of the confused yet totally focused Leonard is truly Oscar-worthy. --Adem Tepedelen

Product Description

Memento est un thriller américain sorti en 2000, réalisé par Christopher Nolan et mettant en vedette Guy Pearce, Carrie-Anne Moss et Joe Pantoliano. L'une des particularités du film Memento (« souviens-toi » en latin) est qu'il alterne des scènes en noir et blanc et des scènes en couleur, les premières suivant un ordre chronologique et les secondes, montées dans un ordre chronologique inversé. Ce traitement est particulièrement adapté au thème principal du film : la mémoire.... Leonard Shelby, un homme ayant des troubles de mémoire suite à un traumatisme crânien, part à la recherche du meurtrier de sa femme un certain John. G . À l'aide de Teddy et de Natalie, il retrouve sa trace...

5.0 out of 5 stars Nolan's best film? Feb. 29 2012
By Steven Aldersley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
Memento (2000)
Drama, Mystery, Thriller, 113 minutes
Directed by Christopher Nolan
Starring Guy Pearce, Joe Pantoliano and Carrie-Anne Moss

"What's the last thing you remember?
"My wife...dying."

I remember watching Memento on cable and buying it a few days later. It was such an original way of telling a story that I was excited to show it to my friends at the earliest opportunity.

They hated it.

The opening scene shows Leonard Shelby (Pearce) killing Teddy (Pantoliano), but that scene is actually how the story ends. Leonard suffered a head injury when his wife was murdered by intruders and hasn't been able to form short-term memories since the event. He remembers everything up to that point, such as who he is and what he did for a living, but can't build new memories.

What would it be like to wake up every day and wonder where you were? What are you supposed to be doing that day?

In order to place the viewer in a similar position, Nolan tells the story in reverse. We see events unfold and new information is introduced each time. The information changes our perceptions of the events we have already seen and the people we have already met. Who can Leonard trust? How can he keep the information readily available if he's going to forget everything?

Nolan actually tells two stories. One is in black and white and proceeds in normal chronological order. This tells the story of Leonard's life before the accident. He worked as an insurance investigator and one of the claimants, Sammy Jankis, had the same problem with his memory. A tattoo on Leonard's wrist tells him to remember Sammy Jankis, and he's able to because it happened before he suffered the head injury.

4.0 out of 5 stars Five Star Movie, Two Star menu layout July 6 2003
Format:DVD
This is an awesome movie, a must-see for anyone who enjoys a story that requires some mental investment on the viewer's part. And this 2 DVD set has some great features on it (including the ability to watch the scenes in reverse...err...chronological order). However, the DVD menus are so unintuitive that they're really frustrating. It's amusing that they decided to model the menus after an aspect of the movie, but doing so makes it too easy to miss many of the features on the discs, or two difficult to find features you're looking for. Nearly all of the features are essentially Easter Eggs. Still, I wholeheartedly recommend this DVD set. There are many websites that expose DVD Easter Eggs, and most of them will tell you exactly how to get to the features on these two discs.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Many Different Versions Sept. 5 2001
Strikingly original and gloriously film-noir, Memento is a rare film that finds the perfect marriage between substance and style without sacrificing the tension, drama, and humor in its well-written script. The first offering from writer-director Christoper Nolan, and adapted from one of this own short stories, Memento engages audiences of all levels in a murder mystery of the first caliber.
Leonard (Guy Pierce) is hot on the trail of the man who murdered and killed his wife. He, too, was injured in the attack, rendering him unable to record any new memories - everything fades after around 10 minutes. Although he remembers everything until he blacked out, including his wife lying dead on the floor, he has formed no new memories since that time. This unusual condition has obviously rendered his search somewhat problematic, and Leonard is forced to rely on scribbled notes, photographs, maps, and tattoos to attempt to piece together his investigation.
In what has been described alternately as a pedantic, pretentious film-school choice and a masterful way to tell a story, the story is told in 10-minute segments, starting at the END and working backwards. Therefore, the audience can piece things together in a way Leonard cannot, and our reality becomes totally different from the main characters'. In fact, one could make the case that Memento is a meditation on the meaning and reliability of memory in and of itself, but I'll leave that one to the scholars.
With its legions of fans, it's a wonder this DVD wasn't released with more extras on it. In fact, there are FOUR different versions of Memento on the world market, and all four DVDs have their strengths and weaknesses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Memento is well thought out Sept. 27 2007
By Jenny J.J.I. TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Rarely have I watched a film that demanded that I pay such rapt attention to detail. Its series of segments, progressively reveal more of what happened but in backwards order. I had to expend a lot of mental energy comparing the events in each segment and piecing together what I thought actually happened. This method of filming alone is challenging but especially so given the main character's mental limitations. It is worth energy to figure out though!

For those who don't know, "Memento" is a story of a man who loses his wife in a rape attack inside their home, pledging that he will track down a murderer for revenge and peace of mind. The main problem is that Lenny (Guy Peirce), after the attack, was left with a problem in that he cannot retain any long term memories. Well that's one brief summary of how to look at it, but there are others. Indeed this film is excellent and played with my emotions, emotions of sympathy, anger and questioning my own morals and judgments. Peirce is exceptional as the lead, and the characters that come into contact with him also give fine performances (notably Carrie-Anne Moss and Joe Pantoliano). Focusing on the problem of losing a memory after approximately 15 minutes, we begin to appreciate just how frustrating Lennys plight is.

The film is beautifully shot and the editing and photography is even better. The best part: the film starts at the end and works it way to a middle point. That's because when the film comes to its end you really don't know if it's the beginning since you don't know what Leonard (Guy Pierce) did before arriving at an isolated place. This film can really be seen as reminiscent of the film style of Film Noir.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hit or miss
It was a very creative and unique movie, but [spoiler], I hate when movies end after you basically find out that the main character is a bad person.
