About the movie

Dr. Malcolm Sayer, a shy research physician, uses an experimental drug to "awaken" the catatonic victims of a rare disease. Leonard is the first patient to receive the controversial treatment. His awakening, filled with awe and enthusiasm, proves a rebirth for Sayer too, as the exuberant patient reveals life's simple but unutterably sweet pleasures to the introverted doctor.

This movie is damn tearjerker. Made me more appreciative on the little things I sometimes taken for granted.

Udmærket film med gode skuespillere. Robin Williams spiller sin klassiske rolle som læge. Det er lidt sjovt at han så tit spillede den figur. For mig er filmen dog lidt for deprimerende og så savner jeg et bedre modspil med Robert De Niro, der bliver hæmmet af at de spiller så forskellige figurer. OK håndværk men ikke en film jeg behøves at se igen eller som rører mig specielt meget.
