Don’t Forget You’re Going to Die
N’oublie pas que tu vas mourir
Xavier Beauvois works behind and in front of the camera with his account of a man tumbling headfirst into a world of chaos.
Dir Xavier Beauvois
With Xavier Beauvois, Chiara Mastroianni, Roschdy Zem, Bulle Ogier
Score by John Cale
Xavier Beauvois wrote, directed and starred in this confrontational account of the long day’s journey into night taken by Benoit (Beauvois), a Parisian student who after discovering he is HIV positive, tumbles headfirst into a world of drugs and reckless experiences alongside Omar (a brilliant young Zem). Things look up when he meets Claudia (Mastroianni), but fate may already have played its hand.
