She even remembers something from when she was 12 days old.

If you want to learn more about this condition, here’s an article from the BBC: “The blessing and curse of people who never forget”

If you want to watch an enjoyable, funny movie about memory (or lack thereof), try “50 First Dates” (Japanese title: 『50回目のファースト・キス』)
