Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Hi everyone ! A new week has gone by so you know what that means... A new film review ! This week I've decided to make a review on "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind", an off-the-wall romantic "comedy" (that's what internet says but i think it has mainly a lot of drama) by Michel Gondry. I've already seen it several times but i decided to watch it again for you guys. Awww I'm so committed ! First thing I thought when I saw the movie poster was "Waw, great cast ! A load of famous guys !". In fact, the two main carters are played by Jim Carrey and Kate Winsle. There is also Kirsten Dunst (The Virgin Suicides) , Mark Ruffalo (Shutter Island) and Elijah Wood (Frodo in The Lord of the Rings guys !). I'd say the atmosphere of the movie is pretty particular... Very romantic, strange, sometimes a little confusing and very melancholic. But i loved it (proof is I've seen it again and again).

It's the story of these two lovebirds, Joel and Clementine. One day, Joel receives a letter to inform him that his current girlfriend, Clementine, has erased all hints of their relation ship from her memory by an experimental procedure performed by Dr. Mierzwiak. Confused, Joel walks up to his medical office and finds out that she didn't want to hear about him ever again. In state of chock and sorrow, Joel decides to get his memory erased as well. During the procedure, he realizes he wants to keep those happy memories and has to fight in his own mind to save them.

This movie is the struggle of a man who tries to avert heartbreak. It's imaginative, beautifully made, unusual but magical, captivating and full of emotion. A movie that will leave you pensive and that you won't forget any time soon.

I chose a fan made trailer because the original doesn't correspond to the movie at all. Do not watch the original...
