SYNOPSIS

Memento is a detective story told in reverse. Opening with a violent attack, Leonard (Guy Pearce) discovers that he is suffering from anterograde amnesia, a condition that affects his short-term memory. With the help of Polaroid photographs and tattoo markings across his body, he attempts to piece together the clues that might point to the person (or persons) who attacked him and murdered his wife. For director Christopher Nolan, the simply premise of a man waking up without his memory becomes the foundation for a gripping neo-noir about paranoia and vengeance. Discussed and debated and critics and audiences alike, Memento unique structure allows for two gripping and confounding timelines; colour sequences show events in reverse order, interspersed with black and white scenes that run chronologically.
