The last movie that I saw is Memento. It was a film directed by Christopher Nolan. The principal actors of the film are Guy Pearce, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Joe Pantoliano. I saw it because a friend recomends me the movie a pair of years ago, but for some reason I did not want to see it before.
The film ends with the the photography of a dead man in the floor. But actually, this scene is the beggining of the movie, because the movie start with the scene that chronologically is the end. Through the movie, we go more and more to the past. That’s funny because when we see a new scene, we have more information and then we reinterpret the previous scenes.
The movie was about Leonard, a man who can’t make memories. He remeber everything of his past til a specific moment of his life. Since that moment forward. That’s is a problem because often he is talking with someone, but he can’t remember who is that person or how the conversation started. He only have notes that remember him where he lives, which is her car, etc. I think that the backwards style of the movie combine really great, because we don’t know neither the past. And we have to take a lot of atention, because the film can be really confused.
I think that one message of the movie is the fact we are actually like the protagonist. Our memories are really usefull, but, like the notes in the film, we didn’t know why we remeber that things, or in what situation we make that or another conclusion about something or someone.
Know I want to see another movie, called Happy ending. That have the same narrative style that this movie.
