Critic Reviews for Time to Leave
Time to Leave strikes a certain register of restrained placidity, yet in the end, succumbs to more and more frequent idealizing interludes.
This is the most personal, deeply felt film from the gifted director of "Under the Sand" and "Swimming Pool." Ozon leaches his melodrama of all sentimentality, and moves us all the more.
It's a quiet and poignant look at a life as it slips away, seen through the eyes of a character who's not always likable but remains entirely real.
It does absolutely nothing that previous movies dealing with this subject haven't done.
Modern audiences are more likely to find the character's behavior to be extremely frustrating, undercutting any sympathetic response one might have for his situation.
Audience Reviews for Time to Leave
A perfunctory, soulless drama about a selfish man who finds out that he is terminally ill and becomes completely distasteful, impossible to relate to in any level. Even worse, most of the actors are bad and the end only shows that the director didn't really have anything to say.
A very moving French film. There wasn't any hollywood type spin to make it extra dramatic, or extra sad...and because of that, the sincerity of the interactions were much more powerful, in my opinion. Quiet, slow, yet not boring. Touching...
Moving french film of life in the face of impending death.
