"Memoriahas something of a horror film or mystery thriller at the beginning. But of course it is anything but a straightforward genre film. The traces blur, the levels dissolve into one another - and in the end, the pure plot isn't much use anymore, because what it's actually about always remains just beyond the reach of the narrative. The film is like that very peculiar, but almost impossible to describe sound:Memoriais also as concise as it is present, but with the linguistic tools at our disposal, we can at best encircle it."
Jochen Werner, Filmstarts.de
"With a surprising modern-jazz interlude and an altogether breathtaking resolution at the end,Memoriais a poetic exploration of sound, time, and memory, and another of Apichatpong's cinematic essays on our interaction with the strangeness of the natural world; along the way, it's also a reminder that Colombia is traditionally the home of Latin American magical realism."
