ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND (article first published : 2005-05-16)

Running at Cinema Sublime in Pietermaritzburg daily at the usual time of 17h15 is Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. (Phone 342 7007).

This is a quirky comedy which won the Oscar for the best original screenplay at last year's Oscars for Charlie Kauffman and Michael Gondry. Kauffman is well known for his off the wall scripts such as Being John Malkovich, and the scriptwriter's delight, Adaptation.

Stephen Coan says in his weekly preview in the Witness that it stars Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet. "Carrey plays Joel, a man who discovers that his former lover Clementine (Winslet) has had all memories of their passionate but tortured relationship erased from her mind. Joel decides to opt for the same procedure only to find that as each memory is progressively erased he rediscovers why he loved Clementine in the first place.

"The film is inspired by a quote from a poem by Alexander Pope about the famous medieval lovers Heloise and Abelard: 'How happy is the blameless vestal's lot! The world forgetting, by the world forgot. Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind! Each pray'r accepted, and each wish resign'd'. "
