Movie Info

Written and directed by Liz Gill, Goldfish Memory chronicles the ups and downs of several Irish singles who, like goldfish, seem to have a memory span that's simply too short to prevent them from repeating the same actions ad nauseam. Lives intertwine when a middle-aged professor (Sean Campion) with a nasty tendency to chase after his pupils breaks up with one of his conquests (Fiona Glascott) in order to repeat the pattern with another student (Fiona O'Shaughnessy).

It is a vacuous and predictable 'looking for love' story that is surprisingly entertaining due to its fast-pace.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Gill's screenplay is more amusing than truly funny, but she gets the characters right, and that's more important in the long run.

Audience Reviews for Goldfish Memory

Pretty cute movie all around. Though I think the goldfish thing was a little overkill...some of the characters had them, they were in a bowl at the local bar, one guy had a goldfish shower curtain...and one guy was using the whole "goldfish memory" thing as part of his deal to pick up girls.

Wonderful little Irish film. What makes it more than your average romantic comedy is the cast and the quirky humour. It's something for every audience: there's gay, lesbian and straight couples, so everybody should check it out... ;-)

It was pretty refreshing and realistic. It's nice how the initial disgust for one of the main characters seemlessly transforms into sympathy by the end. I quite like the goldfish theme... the endless cycle of life, love rehashing aspects from past relationships. Interesting stuff.
