Agnosia (a-gnosis, or loss of knowledge) a neuropsychological illness that affects perception. Although the eyes or ears are in perfect condition, the brain cannot interpret the stimuli it receives through them. This visually stunning & elegant story follows the life of Joana Prats, a beautiful, young woman who suffers from agnosia. As the only one who knows the deep, dark secret left behind by her father, she is drawn into a sinister and life-threatening plot by those trying to garner information, taking advantage of her sensory confusion. The deceitful criminals will stop at nothing to get what they want and as the plot unfolds, will her two closest suitors protect her from falling victim to their cunning plans?

Once I realised this was no ghost story, but an interesting con story, `Agnosia' was a fun film to watch. At the centre is Prevert, a young woman who has an accident and can now only see blurred shapes and colours. To help her out, her family all wear different coloured badges so that they can be recognised. Could this system be manipulated by someone looking to discover Prevert's father's secrets?
`Agnosia' is a slightly strange film that never really picks up any pace, but instead flits between con story and love story. You feel for Prevert's plight, but unlike in modern American cinema, you get the dreaded feeling that not all will end well. With tragedy looming throughout the film, it becomes a hard watch, but an interesting one. Martina Gedeck is a little flat as Prevert and it is left to the noble, yet flawed, Carles (Eduardo Noriega) to drive the film. The subtitles are clear and the film looks fantastic, especially on high definition formats. A curious film for fans of foreign movies, but beware it is a little strange.
The plot centres on a young woman who is believed to have a secret formula (a McGuffin if ever there was one) but who suffers from a form of agnosia which, in this case, means she cannot distinguish objects/people and even sounds and tactile sensations are distorted. A plot is set in motion to extract the secret.
I can't say too much more without giving the game away but a seemingly unlikely, yet strangely believable, romance develops out of this situation. It is this romance and the tension generated between the characters that makes the film worthwhile.
There were little niggles and flaws in the plot, and the motivation of some characters didn't, at times, ring true for me, but overall, I would say an interesting film and a good watch. Not action packed, in any Hollywood way at all, but many will find that a relief (in Spanish with sub-titles).
