Movie Reviews

A Documentary of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Laura A. Black | Charlotte, NC | 08/15/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a physician who has dedicated my career to treating patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia, I found I Remember Me to be a poignant, touching and true to life documentary. Despite the fact that I see people on a regular basis who are disabled by the ravages of CFS, I still found the film to be simultaneously heart wrenching and hopeful, bringing tears my eyes several times. Everyone should see this film. It is informative on many levels, not only just for those afflicted, but family and friends, as well as every medical professional and the general public. Kim Snyder has made an outstanding contribution towards elevating the public awareness of this debilitating syndrome through her educational and informative documentary. This is an important first step in alleviating the prejudices that these people to frequently encounter, not only by the public, but also frequently by medical professionals. You can read about CFS all day long, but until you really get involved in the life of a patient with it, either directly or indirectly by letting Kim Snyder give you a glimpse, a true understanding is difficult to achieve.Aside from the informational aspects of I Remember Me, the cinematography is creative and expressive. Kim Snyder does more than just describe, define and date; she uses the film to let the viewer into her world, sharing the feelings, fears, and dreams of reality so frequently associated with chronic illness and shared by so many affected by CFS. She reveals a great deal of how the experience of life with CFS can be altered in so many ways, from the mundane details of daily life, to the grand realization of lifelong dreams. This is a very deep, personal expression of the journey patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome face."
It's About Time

"For those suffering from Chronic Fatigue this film is very encouraging and was a long time coming. It legitimizes a really miserable (and genuine) illness that for too long has been written off as simply some form of hysteria. For the sufferers, it's a relief to see they're not alone--and to see so many smart and compassionate doctors and researchers who are taking it very seriously indeed.But it's even more important for the non-believers to see it. This film should be mandatory viewing for the families and friends of people suffering from Chronic Fatigue. These patients are not malingerers. This is serious suffering. I have CFS myself and the fatigue, on my worst days, makes me feel like I'm dying (and wish that I were). One doctor in this film says that 20 years from now, the one factor regarding this illness that will seem the most incredible (even more than the suffering itself) is the indifference toward it and the disbelief surrounding it. Not just the indifference and disbelief of the unafflicted--but of physicians! Many of whom still refuse to even respect it.This film does respect a condition which, at it's worst, can cause a misery just about as deep as a human can bear."
The only one.

"How happy I was to find this most important documentary on CFIDS. I felt so grateful to Kim Snyder for making this film which, not only let me know I am not alone but, gave me a very good visual tool to educate my family,friends and colleagues who really don't get it. My husband and I were particularly struck by the testimony of one family member who related that, unless you live with a CFIDS sufferer you really have no idea. The fact is that people only see us when we are having a good day and can get out of bed through the miracle of chemistry. This is a must have film for all CFIDS sufferers. Buy two! One for you and one to lend out. I only wish there were more than one film on this subject and that it were easier to find."
Inspiring and healing

"I was certainly one of those people who knew little and cared less about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. This film changed all that. It challenged my preconceptions and inspired me to both appreciate my own health and to be more caring and open-minded with people who suffer from any illness.A beautifully crafted film that both informs and entertains, "I Remember Me" engaged me with its personal stories and dramatic revelations. Definitely worth owning to share with friends and family."
