Does anybody remember the first scene when he killed teddy? How it happened while he met Teddy again and the film ended with Teddy is dead?


Ok abdelaziz, I' not sure if you've grasped the concept of Memento...

As funny as your frantic panic is, I think I'd better explain....

The film is in reverse order, so the start is the end and vice-versa.

Each 'segment' begins just before the preceding one. So although we see Teddy die at the start, he is actually dying at the end of the films chronology.

    Wow, great diagram (even if the specific bullet points are a bit hard to read, but that's SE's fault, I guess). I think to have heard that the DVD editions feature an entirely ascending chronological order for the whole movie (starting with the b/w phone calls and ending with Teddy's death). While that somehow defeats a large part of Memento's effect, it might still be an interesting view opening further insights.
