Playfully sexy.

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.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

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.

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.

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.
| Original Score: 2/5

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