Movie Info

The nature of love and memory and how the two sensations interrelate are explored in Jean-Pierre Limosin's 2002 film Novo. Office worker Graham (Eduardo Noriega) suffered a head injury that destroyed his ability to maintain long-term memories. Falling in love with the forgetful Graham, temporary office secretary Irene (Anna Mouglalis) takes the opportunity to engage Graham in a sexual relationship that feels like the beginning of a hot romance -- with plenty of adventurous sexual encounters

While its provocative theme clearly has dramatic and comedic possibilities, the film mostly fails to realize them, content to provide a series of erotic encounters with plenty of opportunities for its lead performers to undress.

Playfully sexy.

Sleek, attractive and ultimately vapid, Novo applies to sex and love the concept of short-term memory loss used to such acute dramatic effect in Memento.

Limosin's elliptical narrative, meant to correlate with his protagonist's blank-slate mind, instead plays as desultory and just plain confused.

Despite its philosophical pretensions, the film is fairly lightweight, and its good-looking cast and sleek production values are more memorable than any of its heady themes.

It's Memento as a Eurotrash sex comedy.

It's not hard to be charmed by lead actor Noriega.

Taking a cue from Memento, Novo positions a flesh-and-blood man's short-term memory as a kind of moral invisibility cloak.
