Reviews


80
The Telegraph - Robbie Collin
Egoyan, working from a script by first-time screenwriter Benjamin August, works hard to steer the premise away from crassness – and in Plummer, he’s blessed with a lead actor who can express Zev’s interior struggle with delicacy and dignified understatement.
70
Screen International - Jonathan Romney
A stripped-down drama built around a powerful and sometimes troubling performance by Christopher Plummer.
60
CineVue - John Bleasdale
The thoughtfulness of Plummer's performance is not matched by a script that forgets human logic in favour of narrative tricksiness that ultimately undermines the initially intriguing premise.
58
The Playlist - Jessica Kiang
The pathos of this situation is clear, the stakes, which obviously involve genocide, justice and actual Nazis, are sky high and Plummer is completely extraordinary. So why on earth isn't Remember a better film?
50
Variety - Guy Lodge
Crafted in utilitarian fashion by Egoyan, Remember does little to earn the poignancy of Plummer’s stricken performance.
