Storyline

In a dystopian future, an unidentified virus has caused a neurological disease of global proportions, decimating the majority of the Earth's population. As we observe the lives of a handful of survivors who still remain relatively unharmed by this illness, we understand their struggle to hopelessly attach to their former way of life, where even the simplest of things require great effort to be accomplished. In the end, with varying degrees of memory loss, the need to move on with their lives becomes, inevitably, an arduous task and a fierce battle with the inevitable. Written by Nick Riganas

Not supposed to be entertaining, just stark and original
8 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

Took me a while to figure out how to rate this thing, which is always a good high gauge on my barometer of film excellence. Many reviews wanted this to go somewhere. But the complete absence of memory in stark reality, says you wont, because you wont remember where to go. And for those who still have memory, is it worth having if you are isolated? And if you have intelligence, how do you fight this plague? It also gives a stark look at the ID. Who are we without memory, when all we have left, is our basic nature? I have seen many memory loss movies, but this is by far the best. The acting is superlative, on all fronts. Just like any film buff, I like a good conclusion. But I was happy with this negative one, because of the very nature of the subject matter. In this case, the beginning was the ending, and well, visa versa.
