A film by Atom Egoyan

Cast: Christopher Plummer, Dean Norris, Martin Landau

Zee (Christopher Plummer), 90, a Holocaust survivor, suffering from dementia. He is in a nursing  home, and confused at  times which he  forget that his wife Ruth has died. The day of the funeral, his friend Max gives him a letter to remind him of a promise he made to his wife: to  find the former Nazi who murdered their respective families. His name is Rudy Kurlander and there are  four individuals with this name in the United States …

Now Atom Egoyan has finally made a great film and it is about time. Dementia is a bitch to have every time Zev wakes up he forget that his wife is dead. In order to do the task that it ask of him his friend Max Rosenbaum (Martin Landau) gave him a letter with instructions. The director takes on this journey where Zev is struggling to find Kurlander but he thing he is losing his memory and loosing it at times. It is like he is in his own little world. Will he make it on time or is Krulander dead of old age? for Zev in order not to get lost he has one compass a letter that Max has written to remind him that his wife has died and that he has to embarked in a murderous mission. Here Christopher drivers the part perfectly well. The approach of the director is to film it like a thriller which works here with some great music to build the tension. Do not miss this one.  I have to find the film exotica from Atom Egoyan of course I heard it is a great film also,  I will let you know.
