USA : entre deux siècles

If certain decades of American cinema are immediately identifiable, this is not quite the case for the 1990s and early 2000s, which form a sort of continuum of films straddling two centuries. It is as if the idea of a new era was an occasion for the American cinema to search for and reinvent itself, between the blockbuster era of the 1990s and the digital revolution that began in the 2000s. While some big names prove that they have not said their last word (David Lynch, Martin Scorsese, Terrence Malick), young filmmakers begin their career (Quentin Tarantino, Michel Gondry, Gus Van Sant), confirm their talent (Todd Haynes, Gregg Araki, Steven Soderbergh) or make the highlight of their filmography before disappearing (Tony Kaye, Lodge Kerrigan). Still, there is an undeniable pleasure in revisiting some of the major works of this moment, oscillating between new imaginations, a taste for quotes and the reappropriation of some cinematic styles.

Joel and Clementine see only the bad sides of their tumultuous love story, so much so that Clementine erases from her memory all traces of this relationship. Distraught, Joel contacts the inventor of the Lacuna process, Dr. Mierzwiak, so that he can also erase from his memory everything that linked him to Clementine. Memories begin to flow into Joel's head, from the most recent to the oldest, and one by one they fly away forever. But as he goes back in time, Joel rediscovers what he has always loved about Clementine...
