Hhm...well, I must say this is a tough one. This expression made me laugh the first time a friend told it to me, and I have tried to use it ever since, to impress the people with my errm.. ''witfullness'', however I have never gone as far as translating into my mother tongue. Let's see what I can do for you.Everyone has a photographic memory, just some don't have any film.
How would you translate that into Russian?
Ah, no, no, Maroseika.. I'm afraid this one caught you out a little bit.Фотографическая память есть у каждого, но не у каждого есть, что сфотографировать.
Thta's if I've got your frase correctly, i.e. "photografic memory allows us to remember a film we have seen, but some people have no film to see" - that's what was meant?
