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

Life and death can be so simple and beautiful
3 December 2005 | by (Amsterdam) – See all my reviews

Funny enough, I didn't expect this film to be such a great moment of cinema. I had read a couple of reviews, and most of them were rather lukewarm. I experienced this film like a soft punch in the face and the stomach, and I felt a kind of empathy with most of the characters (except maybe with the sister), because they all represent a problem in modern life. And the actors were so good at their job, without forcing it, that I didn't even think 'Oh wait, but it's Jeanne Moreau playing the part of...", etc. And there's even some humor: sometimes I laughed, and not because I felt ill at ease, but just because it was plainly funny. But it's not a comedy. It's a reflection about love, life and death. How those three can be simple, beautiful, and painful. A beautiful parable on life without any screaming, violence, shooting (like in 'Crash', for instance, which was also a beautiful film in its own way). Go and see it! It might change the way you look at life. If only for an hour or two...
