Full movie description "AmnesiA":Alex, a 28 year-old photographer, is no longer able to photograph people, for some mysterious reason. Every time he focuses his camera on someone, the same woman appears in his viewfinder - an image he cannot bear. When his brother Aram, whom he has not seen or spoke to for years, unexpectedly phones him and asks him to come to their parental home because their mother is severely ill and may not have long to live, he panics. The thought of a confrontation with the area where he grew up and the renewed encounter with his family makes him feel nervous. Nevertheless, that evening he leaves for AmnesiA: the estate of his parents, the spot where he spent his youth.
Reviews of the AmnesiA"AmnesiA" (2001), out of the Netherlands, is not a well-known film. It came to my attention on someone's list of out-of-the-way neo-noir films. The film contains two linked mysteries; they are not revealed until near the end, but during the film we are made aware of them in bits and pieces by both allusions and flashbacks. The movie also is strewn with other mysteries that arise from odd and unconventional behavior that is taken for granted; and these lend a surreal ingredient to the movie. They tie into a general depiction of human beings who are striving for the easing of their pains and uncertainties, who even accept each other's idiosyncrasies up to a point, but who cannot let go of what has happened among them in the past. Its grip is too tight to be easily overcome, and it will take a stronger purge to loosen it.
A twin man of about 28, named Alex (Fedja van Huêt), comes home after a long absence when his brother Aram calls him with news that their mother is ill and he has to go away for a few days. Their dead father had a garage and the acreage along the long driveway to their secluded house is a junkyard filled with car wrecks. Aram is in some shady criminal activity as an underling. Alex arrives with a girl in tow, Sandra (Carice van Houten). He doesn't know her. She settled in his car for the ride and he accepted that and her. Aram arrives with a fellow thief (Theo Maassen) who is badly wounded in the stomach and evidently is going to die, but who refuses medical help. He's not the only strange person. Every person in the story has peculiarities, like Sandra is a pyromaniac. Aram never wears shoes or socks.
The story is well-told. It's suspenseful. The acting is top-notch. The directing doesn't let the drama ever flag. It held my attention the whole way; and the twins played by the same actor were very well carried off.
The use of twins is virtually like alter egos or doppelgänger or even dual personalities. It suggests a personality that's been rendered incomplete or seriously divided by events of the past. It's as if one side needs to deal with the unacknowledged guilt of the other side; and that one side wants the other side to punish it. A full reading of what the film's messages are is beyond my scope; and I'm not sure I could do it anyway and get it right. However, the story has plenty of meat (or depth) to it. I would not dismiss it as Freudian babble.
The theme of love is strong in this film, not just romantic love. It's love that has gone astray, betrayed love and trust that can cause great pain, brotherly love that's been thwarted by shared memories of the past, love that's frustrated. The use of twins and a mother (Sacha Bulthuis) who favors one boy over the other shows yet another facet of love gone wrong.
