Eternal Sunshine of Spotless Mind is a film written by Charlie Kaufman .The movie is about a seperated couple who have erased memories of each other.Clementine is a carefree girl who erases all the memories of her relationships. On hearing this, Even Joel wanted to do it. So, most of the part of the film takes place in Joel’s mind.Joel tries to hide Clementine in remote parts of his unconscious. Joel finds himself revisiting them in reverse. He tries to preserve the happy moments he had spent with her.But gradually, All the memories are slowly erased with the last memory of clementine telling him, “Meet me in Montauk”
It’s strange how Clementine’s hair colour keep changing throughout the movie. Her hair colour is red when she was in love with Joel in his memory and rest of the times it’s a green, blue, etc.So, I think you can forget a memory but you can’t forget the emotions which are attached with it.
The insight of “Eternal Sunshine” is that, at the end of the day, our memories are all we really have, and when they’re gone, we’re gone.
