"How happy is the blameless vestal's lot, The world forgetting, by the world forgot, Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, Each prayer accepted, and each wish resigned."
A riveting drama film that really stayed with me long after I finished watching it. There are some amazing performances from the actors and a truly unique and unforgettable story. It's something like this that takes true skill to make into a great movie, it's just like any other film. We are shown the sequences of events in a different order, with the film starting off basically where it finishes, and the past being shown in between. But they really pulled it off. Everyone did - the director, the producer, the actors.. they all made this movie as brilliant as it could possibly be.
The story is of the romance between Joel and Clementine, who have an unusual relationship from the beginning. But after an argument Joel finds out that Clementine has had a procedure done to erase Joel from her memories. When Joel finds out, he goes the goes to get the same treatment done to him.. only he finds it hard to forget about the person he had loved. When seeing all the moments they shared together he comes to realise why he loved her in the first place. It's easy to get twisted in all of the memories, all of the things happening in at story at once.. but I just sat back and took in everything, and realised how wonderful this movie is.
Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet were stunning, they both had characters unlike others they had been before. Normally Jim Carrey is the loud mouth, while Kate Winslet is usually the more shy character. In this they were very much the opposite of each other, but both showing how versatile they can be. Kirsten Dunst was a nice addition, as were Mark Ruffalo and Elijah Wood.
You must be crazy if you haven't already seen this.. it's one of the most unique romance movies I have ever seen, easily entertaining and enjoyable to watch.
