♦ In his lifetime **
by Emmanuelle Bercot
French film, 2 hours
Emmanuelle Bercot films the end of life of a man who knows he is condemned by cancer and must accept the inevitable, helped by his mother and his doctor. Far from any desire for realism, this assumed and trying melodrama is carried by the beautiful performance of Benoît Magimel and the charismatic figure of Doctor Gabriel Sara in his own role.
