  1. Another worthy performance comes from Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi.

    This is the most personal, deeply felt film from the gifted director of "Under the Sand" and "Swimming Pool." Ozon leaches his melodrama of all sentimentality, and moves us all the more.
  3. The film rests entirely on Poupaud's shoulders, and he rises to the demands of a complex, deeply unsympathetic role.
  4. The splendid, painterly melodramas of Douglas Sirk lurk behind every shot, but the tone is essentially pre-Raphaelite, sexy and cold.
  5. 70
    The same quiet ecstasy that made the final moments of "Under the Sand" so moving works on the viewer here too, inspiring joy and naked grief in equal measure.
  6. Moreau's few ripe scenes are choice, and she spices up the joint with her gravelly voice of je ne regrette rien.
  7. 40
    This oddly dispassionate film about a young man dying of cancer is the French antidote to those Hollywood weepies in which the heroine courageously faces her own mortality with every hair in place.

    Profoundly sad but with a small ray of hope, this beautiful film centers on a vain, selfish photgrapher and his struggle to bring meaning to Profoundly sad but with a small ray of hope, this beautiful film centers on a vain, selfish photgrapher and his struggle to bring meaning to the end of his life. Unable to tell his lover or family of his plight, he confides only in his grandmother (Jeanne Moreau) who similarly chose an outcast role when grief overtook her in the past. Expand
