Where's my wife?
Mr. Guttman! You can't be sneaking up on me like that!
Where is my wife? Where is Ruth?
I'm sorry, Mr. Guttman, your wife passed away about a week ago.
Oh. I'm sorry. Who are you?
My name's Paula. I was Mrs. Guttman's nursing aide. Your family asked me to stay on for another week or two. Let's get some breakfast. You'll be feeling better after breakfast.

I began watching Remember with no great expectations; I thought I'd watch the first 20 minutes or so, and if it seemed promising, I'd come back to it at a later time perhaps.
You will already be aware of the plot/story-line from other reviews etc...; but for those who have not yet seen it, it has a beautiful way of drawing you in somehow. Beautifully written, yet powerful; I found I was becoming so immersed in the movie that there would be no 'coming back to it later'.
Casting and acting are excellent all-round, in what turned out to be perhaps one of the best films I've seen over the past 18 months or so.
There's very little else I can say regarding the film other than 'watch it'... it's excellent.
