Description of Remember: Christopher Plummer plays Zev, a holocaust survivor in his 80s living in a nursing home, who is losing his memory to Alzheimer’s disease. He befriends a fellow survivor of Auschwitz, Max, played by Martin Landau, who has been involved in hunting down war criminals, and who has learned that the Camp Commandant, responsible for the murder of their families, is living in America under an assumed name. Unable to pursue the Nazi because he’s in a wheelchair, Max convinces Zev to implement a plan they had devised earlier with Zev’s recently deceased wife, to find the villain and put a bullet in his brain. He gives Zev a letter of precise instructions which will enable him to track down the murderer. How can a feeble old man, slowly losing his own identity and memory, fulfill such a harrowing mission with just a daily reminder to “read letter” printed on his wrist to help him complete his awful task? The film proceeds both as a somber drama and suspenseful adventure, with a jolting twist at the end.
