Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

2004 – USA – 108 minutes

As part of the film series The Creative Mind of Michel Gondry, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy presents a screening of the film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is arguably Michel Gondry’s most famous film. Soft-spoken Joel Barish (Jim Carrey) and unrestrained free spirit Clementine Kruczynski (Kate Winslet) erase each other from their memories after a painful break up and meet again on a train to Montauk, New York. While they believe to be total strangers, the truth eventually surfaces, bringing a myriad of complex emotions into their relationship. The plot bounces between the present and past, toying with the concepts of memory and romantic love. With elements of a psychological thriller and a nonlinear narrative, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind plunges the audience into a whirlwind of passion and pain as Joel and Clementine determine their fate for a second time.
