Remember Me

A poignant drama that explores one woman’s turbulent journey though Alzheimer’s disease.
3/5

Review

‘Remember Me’ is a touching, albeit quite unusual, drama film written and directed by Aaron Griffin, which cogently presents the timeline of one woman’s harrowing journey with Alzheimer’s Disease, and her abusive husband’s detrimental effect on her life. The film centers around the talented Jessica Orda’s performance, and despite the lack of dialogue, her portrayal is evocative and moving.

The production quality of the film is adequate, with neat editing, beautiful cinematography, and fitting musical accompaniment adding to the raw poignancy of the visuals. The film is based on true events, adding an added sense of reality to the unfolding narrative. However, at a runtime of 48 minutes, some viewers might struggle with the slow pacing and lack of spoken dialogue leading to disengagement.

Overall, ‘Remember Me’ is a unique cinematic representation of Alzheimer’s Disease and its effects on those it touches. Aaron Griffin’s creativity brings us a film that is compelling, genuine and at times heartbreaking. Jessica Ordaz is an actress to watch as she commands a silent central role throughout the narrative. The subject matter handled with the necessary respect and sensitivity it deserves and is brought to life with an innovative flare when considering the lack of definitive storyline or meaningful dialogue. Despite some issues with pacing, it’s worth watching and delivers valuable insights.
