Writer-director-actor Jacques Nolot (below) delivers a bold, searching and open-hearted turn as the subject of this confessional study of life as an elderly gay gent in the French capital.
Before I Forget turns out to be pretty watchable, if sobering, with a fine eye for the absurdities its situations generate.
Before I Forget is a film one can admire, but it is not 'likable,' per se, nor does its director wish it to be.
Before I Forget is, in the broad sense, 'gay-themed'. But it's also one of the loveliest, most direct and most devastating pictures about aging that I've ever seen.
An unblinking portrait of a complicated, solitary gay man who has outlived his working years.
It's hardly a rosy picture of what it's like to be gay and 60 in Paris. But it's an engrossing picture.
..."Before I Forget" one of the most unexpected surprises I've seen in some time...
Made on a modest budget this is a brave film from writer-director-star Jacques Nolot who brings an unflinching honesty to his performance.
A sombre description of age and regret delivered with a deceptively light touch. Wry, tender, full of sympathy and wonderfully acted by Jacques Nolot.
Tortuously slow but unexpectedly charming.
It's a subdued, somewhat melancholic Paris to be sure, but one whose potential loneliness is softened by the intriguing support networks the characters improvise.
Geriatrically paced but genuinely compassionate, Before I Forget introduces a world of ageing bodies, fading libidos and lives spent in thrall to fleeting pleasures.
"Before I Forget" is a downbeat character study in narcissism about Pierre(Jacques Nolot, who also wrote and directed), who when younger relied solely on his good looks to get him through life. Nearing 60, the last 24 years HIV Positive, he now has to pay for sex with younger men instead of the other way around. In fact, after a lifetime relying on physical and economical connections alone, he is deeply lonely and a series of psychiatrists cannot help him with his depression. Plus, he is not sure if he wants to subject himself to a new triple drug regimen.
