le temps qui reste (2005) - francois ozon

Known as 'Time to Leave' in the English speaking world, Le Temps Qui reste stars Melvil Poupaud as Romain, a gay, self centred (and somewhat unpleasant   French photographer who is informed he has a brain tumour, and only a few months to live.  He then has to re-assess his life and deal with the consequences of his oncoming death.  Pretty slow moving, subtitled, depressing in places, and with a sub plot involving childhood and children, it was right up my street.
I should have been born gay and French, l'm wasted (sometimes literally) as a heterosexual scouser (even if that is sometimes hard to believe).
