Three months after surviving a terrorist attack on a Parisian bistro, Mia (the great Virginie Efira) remembers only snippets of the event. She decides to return to Paris and retrace her steps from that fateful evening in the hope that when she remembers more, she can get on with her life. At a group therapy session for survivors, she meets a banker, Thomas (Benoît Magimel), who was seriously hurt in the attack. As they become friends—and Paris reveals itself as a city of perpetual reinvention—glimmers of hope for the future begin to arise… ‘A quietly moving account of survival and resilience… “Paris Memories” [the English title] is a mystery movie, with Mia, like Guy Pearce’s character in “Memento”, following various leads and fractured memories to get to the truth. It’s also a story of emotional renewal...’—Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter
