France 2002

 

It may not be original. Most of all "Novo" comes of as "Memento" meets "Groundhog Day" meets "50 First Dates" with a very sexual twist. But rarely has amnesia been so hilarious on screen.

Graham is trapped within the moment, in the perpetual now, having no ability to form memories due to his amnesia. Any memory is gone within a few hours. On one side, his boss joyfully abuses his handicap to seduce him for her pleasure. On the other side, his girlfriend is hopelessly in love with him. But every time he sees either of the two women, its like seeing them for the first time.

The internal logic may be flawed, but the sheer impact of the situations keep it all together, one way or another. Who said sex wasn't fun?

Comments The transfer may be a little grainy, and at times display heavy edge enhancements, but overall a beautiful transfer.

The additional material consists of 4 small featurettes, each about one aspect of the film. Play all options. They are really insightful in terms of relating to the film, how for instance the photographs of Akari influenced a shot of a leg. Short and good.
