I'm having a hard time with Time to Leave. On one hand, it isn't something American filmmakers would ever make. Not because of the subject matter, but because of the way the story goes about unfolding. (A grown man crawls into bed with his naked grandmother, he neglects to tell almost everyone in his life he's dying, etc.) On the other, it misses so many of the connecting moments, the transformation of the main character doesn't amount to a whole lot. Romain is vile to his sister and her children and his live-in boyfriend. He asks his father drop him off to buy cocaine (and then says it helps him get up, yet can't tell his father he's dying). He doesn't disclose his cancer status to a couple he has sex with. Nothing he does is for anyone else in the film except himself. Sure, he's dying and feels like he has no support, yet Romain never gives the people around him any chance to support him. Frustrating and mind-bogglingly shallow, Time to Leave should and could have been so much more.
