Critic Reviews for Faded Memories
Containing enough wild revelations and tearful confrontations to fill several seasons of an average telenovela.
Audience Reviews for Faded Memories
Incessantly maudlin and downright terrible-- Faded Memories almost has to be seen to be believed. Really, I could swing violent sucker punches all over this strident vanity project, but it would be like kicking an old man on crutches. Now, who the fuck thought funding this embarassing trash was a good idea? This is not an offense to Mrs. Dutoit as a person, but this is one of the worst films that I have ever seen. Sure thing is, it was rotten enough to qualify as a 90-minute hoot in a room full of not-so-sober young adults at a party. I think I laughed here more than I did in all the Will Ferrell films I have seen combined. Thank you, Anne-Sophie.
This is Anne-Sophie, I'm the director of FADED MEMORIES. Just to let you know that the movie's DVD is now available at Amazon and other online sites. It's a double DVD with over 2hrs of bonus features. I'm sure you'll enjoy it! Thx :)
[font=arial][size=-1]I was really impressed by the humanity and depth of this movie. This very young filmmaker (she wrote, directed and co-starred in this movie at age 16) pulled off something quite incredible as she involved me emotionally in the story from beginning to end. It was very hard not to care for the main character - Cassandra - as she struggles with her phobia of touching other people while falling in love with a teen boy against all odds. In the tradition of Romeo and Juliet, the two lovers are torn apart by their families who don't want them to be together -- but Faded Memories takes this to a unique level using an unconventional story structure that I have never seen before in a teen love story. I would highly recommend this movie to everyone who wants to see a touching love story in the tradition of "The Notebook" or "Titanic" (but this is an independent film) with a touch of "Girl, Interrupted." I know it has a very limited release right now but I hope it expands soon so a lot of people can enjoy this very special movie.[/size][/font]
