Storyline

At a prestigious Catholic boys school in Melbourne in the seventies, Tim Conigrave and John Caleo fell madly in love. Their passionate, tempestuous, operatic romance lasted for sixteen years, facing disapproval, temptation, separation, and the looming shadow of the Grim Reaper. Their star crossed relationship was immortalized in Timothy Conigrave's memoir Holding the Man, and has been adapted for stage and screen. This is the true story of how Romeo met Romeo and what happened ever after.

An excellent documentary that really tells Tim & John's story
10 February 2016 | by graemer-2See all my reviews

I saw Remembering the Man at the Adelaide Film Festival and was blown away by it. I'd seen the feature film 'Holding The Man' based on Tim Conigrave's book and I really liked it - but it felt 'not quite right'. It felt like it didn't 100% capture the magic of the book 'Holding The Man'.

When I found out a major documentary was being made of Tim & John's story I knew I had to see it. And it didn't disappoint - in some ways I enjoyed it even more than 'Holding The Man' movie.

Through a combination of re-created scenes, interviews and some narration from Tim himself (from an old interview he did), Remembering The Man really allows you to get inside and behind the story of Tim Conigrave and John Caleo. Since reading the book 'Holding The Man' years ago, I'd always had so many questions about Tim & John - and Remembering The Man answered so many of them.

Remembering The Man is a documentary yes, but it is so much more. To me it really brought Tim & John to life - as real people. I felt I understood them so much more after seeing it.

People keep mixing up 'Holding The Man' and 'Remembering The Man' as if they are the same thing - they are NOT, they are very different. And you really can't fully understand and appreciate Tim & John's real story until you see Remembering The Man.
