Sounds, images, colours, tastes. Everything in his prodigious mind is transformed into a world where there is no boundary between reality and image”. First violinist in the orchestra of a big city, ‘S’ is gifted with an xtraordinary memory which enables him to remember every single detail of everything that he sees happen. He decides to consult ‘L’, an internationally-renowned psychologist, when one day he is unable to read a music score because all the notes on it, as he looks at them, just explode into brightly-coloured moving dots. The relationship between patient and therapist evolves over thirty years, going through highs and lows, during which ‘S’ also goes on stage in theatre and cabaret shows of the time as a Mnemonist. Inspired by a real case study described in 1965 by the neuropsychologist A Lurija, the film is a fascinating journey through the mysteries and gifts of the human mind.
