Remembrance

Image for Remembrance

Inspired by true events, Remembrance is a remarkable love story set against the backdrop of the darkest of times. A German concentration camp in Poland, 1944: romance blossoms between a young Jewish woman, Hannah (Alice Dwyer) and Polish political prisoner Tomasz (Mateusz Damięcki). They steal passionate moments together and fuelled by love, they manage a daring escape. But during the chaos and confusion of the last moments of war, they lose all trace of one another. More than thirty years later, happily married New Yorker Hannah (Dagmar Manzel) sees a familiar face on TV. Could it really be Tomasz, the man she loved and lost all those years ago?

Aided by an impressive cast, beautiful cinematography and an intelligent script, the assured hand of Anna Justice (Max Minski and Me) shows enough restraint to create accomplished cinema that explores the deepest emotions without resorting to cliché or sentimentality.
