Storyline

In a dystopian future, an unidentified virus has caused a neurological disease of global proportions, decimating the majority of the earth's population. Little by little, as we observe the lives of a handful of survivors who still remain relatively unharmed by this illness, we understand their struggle to hopelessly attach to their former way of life, where even the simplest of affairs require great effort to be accomplished. Ultimately, as the last remaining souls suffer from varying degrees of memory loss, the urgent and paramount need to move forward with their lives will become an arduous task and a fierce battle with the inevitable. Written by Nick Riganas

I wanted to like this but it was too much of a downer.
10 June 2017 | by hathor008See all my reviews

I feel like the movie did a good job of portraying the scenario it set out to explore. But it made me really sad, not in an Eternal Sunshine kind of way either, but in an existential way.

Too much fridge horror for my liking. If humanity got hit by a virus like this, our species would essentially be extinct. Given that this is a drama and not a horror movie, it made it all the worse, the stakes are too high and the odds of fixing anything are too low.

It was a disturbing thing because I have personally experienced bouts of amnesia and I can't think of anything scarier than this. I recall how I felt when I saw 50 First Dates, this is taking that concept to a global level and it is very unsettling to explore that on screen.
