The question has been dormant since forever: How would life be if you could erase from your memory what has made you suffer? A hypothetical answer is given by filmmaker Michel Gondry, alongside with the screenwriter Charle Kaufman, a couple of geniuses with a very particular and poetic form of filmmaking that explores the mechanisms of the mind. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is the story of the relationship between Clementine Cruczynsky (Kate Winslet) and Joel Barish (Jim Carrey in one of his most memorable film performances), two people with diametrically opposite characters; while she is snatched, unpredictable, eloquent and sociable, he is quiet, introverted, methodical and thoughtful. One day, after a fight, she decides to remove him from her mind. When he hears this, asks them to do the same procedure as a kind of mindless revenge. The film takes place in Joel’s journey into oblivion when revived, one by one, the moments that bind to Clementine, helplessly observing, how to snatch the person he loves, leaving a hole in his memory. The title of the film follows a verse of Alexander Pope and the plot is based on two novels by French author Boris Vian. Among the cast are Mark Ruffalo, Kirsten Dunst and Elijah Wood.
