One day, the wife has changed. She becomes more forgetful, gets herself lost on the streets, and finds it hard to recognize people she meets every day. She used to cook full meals for many guests but now struggles to even make fried eggs. Like so, her time goes backward.
If there is a story more dramatic than a TV show, it would be about this old couple in the documentary, The memory of you. The wife has dementia. She cannot talk and behaves like a child. She only listens to her husband and is only happy with him. Although their daily life is based on the husband’s devotion, their happy days are to be destroyed when he is also diagnosed with a critical disease. Worrying about his own death before her, he cannot sleep well. Before he has the risky operation, he plans a trip with his wife that could be their last one to remember days with her. Thanks to the objective direction that keeps a certain distance from the characters, their story is conveyed as it is without exaggeration, but the wave of sorrow cannot be kept away. [MOON Seok]
