Product Description

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...

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

To conclude, this movie rocks , although you may need to watch it a few times to fully grasp all the subtlties of what's going on.
The Limited edition version is by turns incredible rewarding and distressingly frustrating! I don't know who decided to make it in such a way, but I truly believe they need to rethink their strategy - not everyone has the patience to play games with a DVD each time they want to watch it, and those of us renting it from our local soul-destroying chain video store that shall remain nameless, don't get the inlay cards etc. leading to a puzzling night...
It challenges a lot of our assumptions of truth and memory and really forces us to home in on our own ideas of which narrative we believe, and should we trust the narrator.
Basically each disc has a set of psychiatric test questions that loop around, and depending on your answer offer you various bonus features.
Disc one isn't too hard to work out, but disc two can be prohibitively obstinate. Thank god then for the invention of the "Internet". Accessing this through a "Computer" will lead you to a bunch of fan sites that have maps and hints to guide you through the labyrinth, which does come off as being slightly rewarding.
The movie opens at the end and replays in short segments leading up to the beginning of the plot, while it alternates with black and white sections that go forward in time to the start of the real plot. The plot itself is dark and disturbing, yet tinged with a surprising amount of humor ("See, I have this condition...").

The main reason I picked up this DVD was the "alternate endings" feature on the back of the box. This turns out to also be slightly misleading.

Format: DVD
Memento is like nothing you have ever seen. That much I can garantee you. Guy Pierce suffers from a specialized form of amnesia where he no longer can make short term memories. His long term memory is intact right up to the incident which caused his condition...and his wife's death. Thus our swiss-cheese brained hero is seeking revenge for his wife, while his memory is wiped clean every ten minutes or so. Covered in tatoo's, pocket's full of polaroids with notes scribbled on them (such as a picture of what his car looks like, aptly labeled "Your Car") Pierce has to try and find the man responsible for the way his life is now while mixing with a great assorment of characters with no idea of how he met any of them or who he can trust. This is easily the best movie I saw this year and I highly recommend it.

Just effing brilliant. The type of movie you can watch over and over again, not necessarily to learn new things, but the very concept leads to thought-provoking inner dialogues about the nature of the self, the soul, time, and memory. The acting is fantastic, cryptic, as we aren't sure how much Leonard really knows about himself (and he doesn't know how much he knows either!) What role does his subconscious play in his actions? Has he recorded all that has happened to him, somewhere in his emotions? Do we even have a subconsious? What will his future hold? How can he live? A masterpiece that should have won some Oscars.

Imagine waking each day and having no memory of anything that has happened over the past twenty-four hours, week or month. This handicap would be more than most could bear, but add a single-minded vengeance focused on finding the murderer of your beloved wife and you have a volatile mixture for increased interest and high drama. The driving force for bringing this unique premise to the big screen is the product of the collaborative efforts of Director Chris Nolan and Columbia Tri-Star Studios. Their efforts in creating a story that stimulates our intellect and traps us in its' snare of plot twists for the entire duration of the movie is an achievement and makes this a must see for anyone looking for change a pace from the typical drama.
Further adding to this unique premise is the fact that the story is told in an unnatural reverse sequence; beginning with the ending, then building towards the ending again in ten minute segments. Even though the viewer is shown the ultimate ending first, the story really becomes about why the story concluded this way and thus begins their journey with Leonard Shelby, the unfortunate amnesiac portrayed perfectly through the fine acting of Guy Pierce. The viewer roots for Leonard due to his absolute devotion to finding his wife's killer through many of the creative efforts he utilizes to overcome his affliction. These include the use of Polaroid pictures, many notes scribbled on various pieces of paper and from a multitude of tattoos that adorn his body along with two individuals that we, the viewers, are really never sure are supposed to serve as friend or foe to Leonard. With all of these elements combined, this movie fulfills the role of achieving the highest excellence in film for this genre and creates a superior classic psychological drama for all to enjoy.
