Before I Forget (2007)
A potrait of a 58-year-old man battling his inner demons on the search for self-discovery.

… Pierre sees a shrink three times a week–a younger gay man who encourages him to go with younger gay men, believing it will give him a boost. Nolot is frank about his own sexuality, which seems to be of a well-off bourgeois kind, but he doesn’t show gay society as we know it in America. Where are the gay parties, gay bars, gay couples, or even just gay support groups? The solidarity available to urban gay men in the US seems missing here, where French gays have full intellectual self-acceptance but don’t seem to envision the possibility of a positive lifestyle–of political action, for example, longtime companionship, adoption (or fun?). Depressed coping is the rule of the day. To what extent is Nolet/Pierre’s aloneness self-imposed? There is also a fascination with money, who has it, how to get it, how to keep it. One sequence given climactic position is of the auction where the big art collection is sold off.

Pierre talks about considering suicide. Life is a string of cigarettes, or cups of coffee taken with a world-weary air. Pierre copes, but he does not thrive. Where are life’s enthusiasms? All in the past, it seems. He reads aloud a love letter from the Eighties with slightly tearful wistfulness. Lost perhaps in the hedonism of a vanished youth, he can’t get a positive grip on the present, but won’t let it go either. This is a very urbane and European treatment of a life that’s been reduced to mechanical coping. But isn’t it a bit of a pose, since Nolet has the energy to produce a distinctive sequence of works–to act in 65 films and direct four of his own–the 1986 Manège, the 1998 Arrière-Pays, the 2002 La Chatte à deux têtes,/Porn Theater, which had limited US distribution; and this, which, “low-budget” or no, did cost 400,000 euros to make?
