Storyline

In Paris, the thirty-one year old gay fashion photographer Romain learns that he has a terminal cancer and his chances with the chemotherapy are the least. His choice is to live the rest of his life without treatment. He hides the truth from his lover Sasha and his family and is cruel with them. He travels to visit his grandmother Laura and has a small talk with a waitress. He spends a couple of days with Laura and he meets by chance the waitress again that asks him for an unusual favor. Romain returns to Paris and changes his attitude toward the rest of his life. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

We Die Alone
2 December 2005 | by (Timisoara, Romania) – See all my reviews

Ozon is a strange figure. Strange in a sense that actually makes him normal: sometimes controversial, sometimes authentic, but always a great analyst of the emotion's spectrum.

It becomes clear really early that the film will be more of a contemplative portrayal of death than a daring fight lead against it. And sometimes it's better that way, to take things as they come. Thirty one year old Romain isolates himself from his family and friends and deals with several stages of the whole "accepting death" experience. A so dreaded experience. Consequently, the film is distant and may seem tedious at times, but all the means serve their purpose.

"Le temps qui reste" (gorgeous title, I feel obliged to emphasize this) is a difficult film: homosexuality, solitude and death are themes which few can bear light-heartedly. Still, Romain's process of severing himself from himself is intriguing at all times and the film's final sequence is of a most sincere impact. It's about adapting to the idea of dying in a glacial modern society.

We are generally alone in this world and all we have is our family. And if we lose that, we are left with thoughts, never to be forgotten. Le temps qui reste.
