Director Barbet Schroeder used the same principal location in Amnesia (2015) and More (1969). The white house near Sant Antoni de Portmany, Ibiza was built in 1935 and acquired by Schroeder's mother in 1951. See more »
The story takes place in 1990, yet towards the end of the movie the female protagonist takes a ride on a car with a modern E.U. format plate, which weren't introduced until 1998, and a registration code from the mid 2010s to boot. See more »
It had all the ingredients to be an outstanding movie. Great and deep story with a touching real human drama, good actors and a beautiful location.
Unfortunately none of that was able to save it from the bad scrip full of cheesie lines, the bad directing that made the movie look more like a slide show than a fluent motion picture and the resulting over and under acting which lead to making this movie completely unbelievable ... somehow it feels like this movie was never really finished or rushed to be done.
I've soon other works of Barber Schroeder and they are good, so I honestly don't know what happens here.
