      Released Aug 11, 2023 1 hr. 25 min. Documentary List
      93% 73 Reviews Tomatometer 94% 50+ Ratings Audience Score Augusto and Paulina have been together and in love for 25 years. Eight years ago, he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, and his wife has since become his caretaker. As one of Chile's most prominent cultural commentators and television presenters, Augusto is no stranger to building an archive of memory, having been responsible for that herculean task following the Pinochet dictatorship and its systematic erasure of collective consciousness. Now he turns that work to his own life, trying to hold on to his identity with the help of his beloved. Day by day, the couple face this challenge head-on, adapting to the disruptions brought on by the taxing disease while relying on the tender affection and sense of humor shared between them that remains intact.

      Marika Sparrow The most beautiful love story I’ve ever seen!!! Best movie of 2023. Absolute MUST SEE! It will resurrect the faith in love of the most unbelieving Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/05/23 Full Review Eduardo F Excellent representation of a drama that many people have to go through with their elders. Pain and anguish are reflected in both of them. Maite did it again! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/19/23 Full Review Tom F It's hard to be cynical about love when you see this couple look at each other. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/12/24 Full Review Kyle M This observative documentary seems to minimally capture the growing signs of dementia and the struggles that come with it, emphasizing the importance of cherishing lasting memories as sympathetically nuanced buildup after respectfully displaying the persons' profiles.

      Linda Holmes NPR The love story of these two, and the way Pauli makes her way through extraordinarily difficult moments in which he is upset or frightened, feels surprising over and over. Feb 29, 2024 Full Review Wendy Ide Observer (UK) A restrained, respectful piece of film-making that takes its lead from its two subjects. Rated: 4/5 Nov 13, 2023 Full Review David Jenkins Little White Lies Instructive on cognitive decline, but overall too slight to hit home. Rated: 3/5 Nov 11, 2023 Full Review Erick Estrada Cinegarage There's a valid and tender love story here... but it takes the easy way, as while focusing on it, it takes away from questioning the discourse of the lost memory of Chile. [Full review in Spanish] Mar 15, 2024 Full Review Alison Rowat The Herald (Scotland) Every flashback to their well-documented previous lives is a heartbreaker, and as time goes on the picture becomes bleaker still. But what shines through is love, and laughter. Lots and lots of laughter. Feb 27, 2024 Full Review Robert Roten Laramie Movie Scope This documentary not only chronicles the mental decline of a famous journalist, but it also shows us the beauty of love and marriage. It shows us how love persists, even when memory fails. Rated: A Jan 24, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews
