    Time To Leave by François Ozon (Le Temps qui reste, France, 2005, 90 min.). The director of some of the most engaging French tales of the last 10 years, François Ozon (Swimming Pool, Under the Sand, and Eight Women) turns to a somber look at the final days of a young, gay man’s life. Romain (Melvil Poupaud) is a good-looking fashion photographer with seemingly everything to live for, but his life suddenly changes when he collapses during a shoot. Faced with an untreatable cancer diagnosis, he decides to tell no one except his grandmother (Jeanne Moreau in a remarkable performance). As Romain bears the weight of his knowledge alone, we see him struggle through anger and denial to reach an acceptance of sorts. Romain is never sanctified or made heroic, and the reconciliations he makes are with himself rather than with others. Time to Leave is an intimate, moving work in which Poupaud excels in the demanding central role. Also starring Valeria Bruni Tedeschi. Description adapted from the London Film Festival's catalogue.
