A Memória que me contam (Memories They Told Me). 2013. Brazil/Chile. Directed by Lúcia Murat. In Portuguese; English subtitles. 95 min.

Screenplay by Murat, Tatiana Salem Levy. With Franco Nero, Irene Ravache, Simone Spoladore. Though the film is set in present-day Brazil, the past hangs palpably over Memories They Told Me. With their friend and former comrade Ana on her deathbed, a group of aging revolutionaries are reunited and forced to grapple with their former accomplishments, failures, and lingering resentments. Wary of self-aggrandizing nostalgia or romanticism, Murat offers an honest, complicated look at youthful idealism and the often uneasy overlap between the personal and the political.
