There are many indicators of star power. Not the least of them is unforgettability. On screen, no less than in the laboratory, Eric Kandel has star power.
The film alternates between the memory lane travelogues, interviews with Dr. Kandel explaining for the layman the intricacies of the physical structure of memory, and the observations of his assistants and colleagues.
The best reason to see Petra Seeger's documentary In Search of Memory is to make the acquaintance of the remarkable Dr. Eric Kandel,
An engrossing portrait all the same, a generous introduction to someone worth knowing, who knows an awful lot.
Seeger deftly interweaves the ironies, the paradoxes, and the deeper implications of her subject, but the irrepressible Kandel steals the show.
Despite its lack of piercing questions, In Search of Memory manages to be a captivating, illuminating and delightful documentary filled with surprising moments of humor and charm.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind nails us between the ears with truer aim than this ultimately benign portrait.
Filmmaker Petra Seeger effectively forms the synapses between Eric Kandel's personal search for his childhood memories and his scientific research about memory, giving us insight into how memory is developed and sustained.
No negatives can detract from the warm, inviting, slightly-yellowed smile of this survivor and optimist with more to teach us than just neuroscience.
