“Life’s all about moments of impact and how they change our lives forever. But what if one day you could no longer remember any of them?”

I guess this is my first movie in this year. And I am very lucky to have this movie played in my country. I watched it with my friend and I did not have any expectation. In fact, I was not expecting a good movie. I kinda recognize the actress, but I cannot grab it from my memory.

It was The Vow. Have you watch it?

It was actually a true life inspired movie. A type of movie that I always avoid. Why? well, simply because my life is complicated enough without trying to understand other people’s lives.
