"Joel wants to forget his past love Clementine, who causes him so many headaches. He has part of his memory erased with a new treatment method. Unfortunately, the procedure is only a short-lived success, as Joel soon falls in love all over again with the beauty he doesn't know."
Zurich Film Festival
"From this basic idea, which director Michel Gondry brought to screenwriter Charlie Kaufman, develops one of the most beautiful and truthful love stories to be seen in cinema in a long time."
Svenja Alsmann, artechock
"Here the ideas are filled with real feeling, the characters are tangible, funny, sad, sometimes uncomfortable. They come across as authentic. This is also due to the main actors. Winslet (...) forms the heart of the film with the joie de vivre of the charming and annoying Clementine, Carrey breaks out of the comedian's role compartment and gives his character a subdued tragic note (although the scene of his regression to childhood is insanely funny). Director Michel Gondry (...) employs a full range of whimsical techniques to tell his story without ever allowing style to take over over substance. For all his visual panache, he has a clear-eyed view of the painful realities of relationships, but beneath the depression and biting cynicism lies a message. Love will find its way."
