Finding Nemo/Memento mashups

Pixar’s animation about a fish in search of his son and Christopher Nolan’s thriller about a man searching for his wife’s killer don’t have much in common. However, they are both a) really good and b) have characters with amnesia.

And in fact, their portrayals of the condition are surprisingly similar: “the amnesiac character retains [their identity, has little retrograde amnesia [where memories of the period just prior to the injury are lost] and shows several of the severe everyday memory difficulties associated with the disorder” such as “learning and retaining information, recalling names and knowing where she is going or why.”

So it’s not surprising that the internet has created mashups of the two:
