'Memory': Jessica Chastain and Peter Sarsgaard star in Michel Franco's film

Sylvia is a social worker, and lives a simple, organized life – her daughter, her work, and AA meetings. The situation changes when she returns from her high school reunion and Saul follows her. An unexpected meeting will have a profound impact on both of them, opening the door to the past.

As for the script and direction “memory” Replies Michel Franco (“The Guardian”, “Sundown”). Academy Award winner Jessica Chastain (“The Eyes of Tammy Faye,” “Asylum”) plays Sylvia, a single mother with a traumatic past. Her partner is Peter Sarsgaard (“Citizen Jones,” “Batman”) as Saul, a man suffering from dementia whose family has isolated him from the world. Michel Franco creates their story with tenderness and sensitivity, showing a relationship that gives the characters an alternative to safety and closeness.

“It's hard to tell stories about trauma and traumatic experiences from the past. A lot of people have gone through horrific experiences and found ways to move forward. I'm sure almost everyone knows people who have gone through very dark things in their lives. As You Are While preparing for the film, I spend a lot of time “In creating stories for the characters I play, even if it's not about the movie scenes, I create these kinds of stories because then I can be closer to my heroine, and I can understand her better. “It's very inspiring that Sylvia develops a relationship with Saul, actually The only person who only sees her at the moment they meet. She doesn't have to explain anything from the past, who she is, just the here and now. “I think that's very inspiring in this relationship,” Jessica Chastain said in an interview with Variety.

“My uncle had early-onset dementia. It is very difficult to imagine such a serious illness in someone my age. I thought I really had something to say about this character. I also noticed that the portrayal of dementia in other films I had seen was not “It doesn’t seem that way.” . Just like him. One of the things I loved about my uncle was that whenever someone he'd never met before showed up, he'd say, “Hi! How are you? Good to see you.” “How's it going?” He wanted everything to be perfect until the end. I thought it was a good opportunity to play someone who suffers from this disease, but wants to be positive for everyone at every moment, until the last second. You think of this disease as something that takes away your personality, but it doesn't have to be that way,” recalls Peter Sarsgaard in an interview with Variety.

Michel Franco's film previously won Peter Sarsgaard the Best Actor Award, which was given during the Venice International Film Festival. It was also shown in Toronto, San Sebastian and London where it was very well received by viewers and critics. The Polish premiere took place at the American Film Festival in Wroclaw.
