“Alternately funny, raunchy and sad.” - Indiewire
Remember is a compelling thriller in which the darkest chapter of the 20th century collides with a contemporary mission of revenge.
With the aid of a fellow Auschwitz survivor and a handwritten letter, an elderly man with dementia seeks to right the wrongs of the past. Zev (Academy Award winner Christopher Plummer) and his best friend Max (Academy Award winner Martin Landau) make a pact to dedicate their remaining days to resolving unfinished business: tracking down and exacting revenge on the Nazi commandant responsible for killing their families during the war. As Zev is losing his memory to Alzheimer’s and Max is too frail to leave the nursing home, Zev must embark upon the journey to find their former tormentor before it’s too late.
The shocking truth that awaits Zev when he finally comes face-to-face with him will turn his life upside-down. From acclaimed filmmaker Atom Egoyan comes a powerful film about the ultimate cost of revenge and the terrifying truths unearthed when we are forced to confront our past.
