Remember is a film about two elderly men living in an assisted living facility: Max has physical impairments and Zev has worsening dementia. After the death of Zev’s wife, the two men combine forces to hunt down and kill the man they believe killed their families at Auschwitz. Max makes the plans and Zev executes them, so to speak. The film stars Academy Award winners Christopher Plummer and Martin Landau, acclaimed German actors, and Dean Norris (“Hank” from Breaking Bad, another excellent morality play in five seasons). It reminded me of a statement about aging: “Of all the things I miss, I miss my memory the most.” Very good film that raises many issues about remembrance.
