As disturbing and intimate questions arise over the boy's unexplained disappearance, horrid suspicions paired with Julien's profound guilt that keeps building up will soon have him wandering in the snow, embarking on a wild goose chase to solve the mystery. Just how far will the pained parent go to retrieve his only son?

Although I haven't seen any of Memento's European import, the English-language version, I do know that it's bad. The movie was made in Belgium and France, and I think it has elements of both. The location seems to be some picturesque small town, where people with small children look up to their grown-up relatives who they call "Grandparents". The French title comes from the word Grandmother, the former title of "The Wrong Mans", the so-called work of Jean-Luc Godard which had just a few months to run on French TV. It was supposed to be an examination of the mentality of American youth - who think that the world revolves around their own self. Grandparents are a good metaphor for this mentality, and the film is told in a way that makes the Grandparents seem more like a group of street thugs than a family. One way to make the movie more convincing is to give the Grandparents an extra dimension, so that we can say that the movie is about the grandparent, who has it all. In that case, it would make the movie more effective. Unfortunately, Memento is a good movie and it is worth seeing. But it has elements that make it seem less interesting than it should. For instance, we do not see how the Grandparents change their behaviour once they come to know the (unrelated) grandkids. And the movie spends far too much time on the family itself, rather than on the relationship between the grandparents and their grandkids. Although the movie is worth seeing, I can't help but wonder why the producers chose to adapt a French film from the 1990s to a U.S. movie from 1993. The 1992 version of "The Wrong Mans" was about the relationship between a Russian immigrant father and his son. I think the 1995 version was about the relationship between a Muslim immigrant and his son. In other words, this is not the same movie.
