The title of the movie refers to a term introduced in scientific literature (1977) by the american psychologists Roger Brown and James Kulik, in a pioneering study about the relationship of memory with the emotions. The term appeared by analogy with photography, and with it the authors referred to the memories concerning the circumstances in which a person became aware for the first time of an very unexpected event, even shocking - both personal as well as fraternal -, with relevant consequences for her, arousing in any case strong emotions. After have been established, “flashbulb memories” would be practically permanent, because of the extremely vivid memories triggered by the occurrence that gave rise to them.
