Ana Cristina de Oliveira,
A fashion photographer with terminal cancer elects to die alone, preparing others to live past him rather than prolong the inevitable with chemotherapy or be smothered in sympathy by those who know him.
Well loads of people are going to hate it ... But I loved it ... It managed to show the positive aspects of taking chances in your life ... All too rare in this awful cesspit of mediocrity that society has become ... Cantona is great :)) ... Beatrice Dalle has a marvelous outrageous cameo ... And the whole cast manage to create an amazing dreamworld channeling Daughters of Darkness and The Hunger and various other films into something very 21st century AND very French ... Thank god some directors with brains can still find financing to make films ... I had to suffer through the first half hour of Noah before this ... It was awful and unwatchable ... This shows what a bit of imagination can do ... Rather just throw money at the screen and usually create expensive unwatchable rubbish
