    [#i_]Time Regained[_i#] by Raul Ruiz, a remarkable adaptation of the last chapter of 『In Search of Lost Time』 by Marcel Proust. The film begins with an old man lying in bed and traces his memory back. Following the pictures in the room, we find Gilbert, a woman who once stole his heart. And you will meet Odette, Gilbert´s mother and his other lover, Albertine. Photographs evoke memories but do not explain about them. Memory is one of the factors that make us human. The human body is held at a point in time of life, but the memory smoothly slides on the coordinates of time. In that sense, whether it is Proust´s novel or Ruiz´s film, it is futile to summarize the story. Both works do not reveal the authenticity of things of the past, so [#i_]Time Regained [_i#]becomes a film dealing with the nature of memory, not memory itself. [JANG Byungwon]

Ruiz´s career began in the avant-garde theatre where, from 1956 to 1962, he wrote over 100 plays. In 1968, he releases his first completed feature, Three Sad Tigers, immediately winning the Golden Leopard in Locarno that year. Ruiz became one of the key Chilean directors of New Latin American Cinema.Influenced by the fabulist tradition that runs through much Latin American literature ,Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Jorge Luis Borges, and Alfonso Reyes, Ruiz is a poet of fantastic images whose films slip effortlessly from reality to imagination and back again. Ruiz is renowned and acclaimed worldwide, regular presence, for the past 40 years, in the major international film festivals ? nominated 4 times for the Golden Palm at Cannes, where was also jury in 2002, won the Golden Leopard in Locarno, won the Siler Bear in Berlin, won the Cesar, was nominated for the Golden Lion int Venice, won Twice the FIPRESCI Award in Montreal, was honoured in 2004 Rotterdam - ´Raul Ruiz: An Eternal Wanderer´ and also in 2007 Rome Film Festival that showcased 46 of his films.
