Brief Synopsis – A woman wakes up from a car accident with no memory of the past few months and goes on a journey to rediscover her life.
My Take on it – This is a film that I came across by accident and knew absolutely nothing about besides the overall premise.
They do a wonderful job showing that social media can also have some great positive benefits since the main character uses it to try and reconstruct the past few months of her life.
The way that things play out works well in showing how people can try and recollect memories that seem hidden on a deeper level than expected.
Love the way that this film allows us to learn about this character’s life at the same time that she is relearning about what happened to her because it all feels so much more personal this way.
The film starts off great and they manage to find a way to keep the truth just a short distance away from us and the characters by teasing it now and again.
The way that the film depicts memories via montages works really well in helping us learn so much more about this character and her past experiences and memories in a rapid style fashion.
Unfortunately, the film’s climax changes everything and essentially changes the genre of this film and that isn’t as satisfying as things were initially.
This also essentially runs any trust that we had built up beforehand and is quite a shame.
Bottom Line – Intriguing premise that allows us to see how social media can be used in order to reconstructs memories and parts of ones life. The way that the film allows us to learn so much about the main characters as she finds them out for herself is great and lets us see things from a very personal persoective. They use montages here really well in order to allow both the main character and the audience to quickly learn about past events in a rapid style fashion. The film starts off really well and keeps the mystery of what happened within arm’s length, but still teases things nicely. The final third of the film takes the story into strange territory that in essence changes the genre of the film and that takes away from all of the trust that was built up beforehand.
