Joel (Jim Carrey) and Clementine (Kate Winslet) meet for the first time on the beach in Montauk, New York, and fall in love in a short time. After a 2 years turbulent relationship they break up.
Clementine hire a firm to erase all her memories of their relationship. Upon discovering this, Joel is devastated and decide to undergo the procedure himself.
During the procedure, that takes place while he sleeps, he regrets his decision to erase his memories, and...


In Italian the title is pretty stupid - Se mi lasci ti cancello, meaning If you leave me I'll erase you -, and it made me believe this film was one of those typical romantic comedies everybody loves, but it wasn't. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is a delightful film. This is one of those films to be watched carefully and as you progress you'll understand how it works. Ellen Kuras, director of photography, did a great job.


Joel: Sand is overrated. It's just tiny, little rocks.

Joel: What a loss to spend that much time with someone, only to find out that she's a stranger.

  1. I liked this one, too. I'm not really a Carrey fan, but he kept his insanity in check, pretty much, here.
