Le Temps Qui Reste (2005)
Le Temps Qui Reste plot
31-year-old Romain (Melvin Poupaud) is a selfish and arrogant fashion photographer who seems to have it all: a successful career, a nice apartment in Paris and a nice boyfriend. When he faints during a photo shoot and is examined in the hospital, it turns out he has a tumor. His chances of survival are minimal and he refuses to be treated. Romain doesn't tell anyone about his illness. After an argument with his family and the breakup of his relationship, he travels to his grandmother (Jeanne Moreau). She is the only person he confides in his secret 'because you are as close to death as I am'. On his return trip to Paris, a waitress (Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi) in a roadhouse gives him an unexpected offer that will change his life.
