Movie Info

The second feature from director Michel Gondry (Human Nature) finds the filmmaker reteaming with screenwriter Charlie Kaufman for this off-the-wall romantic comedy. Jim Carrey stars as Joel Barish, a man who is informed that his ex-girlfriend Clementine (Kate Winslet) has had her memories of their relationship erased from her brain via an experimental procedure performed by Dr. Mierzwiak (Tom Wilkinson). Not to be outdone, Joel decides to have the same procedure done to himself. As Mierzwiak's bumbling underlings Stan (Mark Ruffalo) and Patrick (Elijah Wood) perform the operation on Joel -- over the course of an evening, in his apartment -- Joel struggles in his own mind to save the memories of Clementine from being deleted. Kirsten Dunst, David Cross, and Jane Adams also star. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

    I can't remember the whole movie because it's with so many parts and you must watch it to tell it whole. That movie makes the feeling in yourself get little bit real and maybe to feel it. It takes the points of the nature and shows them in somehow really nice and good way that the watcher can just watch and watch without thinking about anything and if something distracts the people they get angry on it because it confusing the concentration on the film. So emotional.
