  • Forget Me Not

    2012. Germany. Directed by David Sieveking. In his second film, Sieveking turns the camera on his parents—Gretel, who suffers from Alzheimer’s, and Matle. Sieveking documents his mother's deterioration and the difficulty his father experiences as her sole caretaker, but also shows moments of dignity and affection. While looking through family photographs, Sieveking recounts his parents' youth in the 1960s, including Gretel's engagement in radical politics and their open marriage. Forget Me Not is notable for its sincerity, depicting Gretel and Malte's golden years in quotidian, sometimes humdrum, detail, forgoing drama for tenderness in a way that rarely happens on the screen. In German; English subtitles. 88 min.
