MEMENTO MORI by Michael Vermaercke
A beautiful girl in a coma on a hospital bed. Inside her head, the traumatic events of the day before keep playing on and on. What began as a modern day Cinderella story turns into a Lynchean nightmare. Genre film lover Michaël Vermaercke (remember his two shorts Void and The Disturber), makes his feature film debut with Memento Mori. A birthday party by the swimming pool is the perfect setting to ventilate the anxieties of puberty through a trashy and often violent fantasy. The title says it all. It’s a Latin quote that roughly means “remember that you’re going to die”.
