..in the movie 'Before Sunset'
"memory is a wonderful thing if you don't have to deal with the past"
What is the exact meaning of this sentence?
'deal with' means 'solve the problem?'
I like this movie so I'm reading the screenplay..
Re: ..in the movie 'Before Sunset'
Without context, I would interpret it as meaning that remembering things can be a pleasure, unless your past was unpleasant and contained events that still affect you.
