A guy finds out his ex-girlfriend has had all memories of him removed. He then decides to have the same procedure done to remove all memories of her. Most of the movie takes place in his memories, while the procedure is being done.
I imagine it would be quite confusing if you didn't understand what was happening or that a particular scene was a memory he was replaying in his head.
No, quite the opposite of Punch Drunk Love. Where Punch Drunk Love was repressed, this movie is hysterical and hyper-active. Sort of, I guess. It is, however, a compelling romantic story, like Punch Drunk Love was. But completely different approaches.
Geisha, they address that issue quite directly. ;)
I should add that typically I don't like movies with gimmicks, visual or otherwise. I find that usually the gimmick tries to hide the fact that a relatively boring movie is actually all that's there. I thought this movie did a great job of using it's gimmick (the story set up and imaginative special effects) to propell an already well-told story.
