synopsis

From acclaimed Academy Award® nominated filmmaker Atom Egoyan (The Sweet Hereafter) comes a powerful film about the ultimate cost of revenge and the terrifying truths unearthed when we are forced to confront our past.

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, The Sound of Music) and his best friend Max (Academy Award® winner Martin Landau, Ed Wood) 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.

Also starring Jürgen Prochnow (Das Boot), Dean Norris (Breaking Bad) and Bruno Ganz (Downfall) Remember is a compelling thriller in which the darkest chapter of the 20th century collides with a contemporary mission of revenge.
