The Price of an Eternal Memory
3 January 2016 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In the future, most of the population has a chip called Grain implanted to record and watch the memory of the entire life. After a job interview, the lawyer Liam Foxwell (Toby Kebbell) takes an earlier flight to meet his wife Ffion (Jodie Whittaker) in a dinner party with her old friends. When he unexpectedly arrives, Ffion is talking to her friend Jonas (Tom Cullen) and Liam finds her reaction strange. Then he watches her glances at Jonas during the dinner and he suspects they have a love affair. Liam presses his wife for an answer and she admits that Jonas and she had a love affair in Marrakesh before she meets Liam. They have sex and Liam spends the night drinking and reviewing the reunion. On the next morning, he drives to the house of Jonas and confronts him. What will be the price of his obsession?

"The Entire History of You" is another dark episode of "Dark Mirror", with a criticism to the excessive use of technology. What could be an argument between husband and wife becomes an obsession with the playback of past memories destroying their marriage. My vote is eight.
