From Gay Essential
Starring, written and directed by Jacques Nolot, Before I Forget (Avant que j’oublie) is a French drama film that depicts the struggles of a gay former-hustler who is now facing old age. The movie also stars Marc Rioufol and Jean-Pol Dubois and was released in 2007.
“It’s an unsentimental meditation on old age and pleasures past, memories happy and sad, from a life spent providing and receiving sexual pleasures of an active and passive kind.”
— The Guardian
“Avant Que J’Oublie is not only a fascinating and moving look into a world of marginalised homosexuality that probably does not exist anymore for most gay people, it is also an important work from the point of view of the politics of film.”
— Ruthless Culture
“Before I Forget” is an unblinking portrait of a complicated, solitary gay man who has outlived his working years.”
— The New York Times
