The film was not only very educational but also moving. Definitely the ending was what strucked struck me the most. We got to see all the patiens get their life back and then it was all taken away from them. I think that the poem might be Leonard’s attempt to explain the state he was in for 30 years. However, it is very hard for me to understand what he really meant. What is more is that I enjoyed how the movie was made. It had a lot of hidden details and meanings. The one scene that I loved was when Dr. Sayer took Leonrad out for the first time and when they were walking down the stairs Leonrad’s slow steps were compered to little girl’s steps. I find it beautiful.
