I’m usually don’t write about documentary movies, but the film Tell Me Who I Am has an extraordinary story and it’s done like an ordinary movie. A true story with real-life people and not actors, telling their emotional story. The documentary is brought by Netflix and will be premiered next week.
The story follows two twin brothers, one of them, Alex Lewis, had lost his memory at the age of 18. His brother Marcus is teaching him who he is, helping him to re-create his lost memories… Told by Marcus, Alex creates an idyllic childhood picture in his head about his childhood, but not everything is ideal… After decades later, they have to confront to a traumatic family secret and stop living in lies and fake history…
