Aro Recommended My Life Without Me


Canada / Spain 2003, 106 minutes
Dir. Isabel Coixet
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama / Independent


Aroview: This award-winning vignette concerns a young woman (Polley), told by her doctor she has only a short time to live, who strives to secretly fulfil herself in the time available.

Keeping her fate hidden from all around her, she siezes the moment as never before, a difficult process given her circumscribed blue collar existence. Polley conveys her character's plight with a natural ease, and indeed the whole cast are convincing, yet the film cannot avoid a certain air of over-convenient events - the importance of which will depend on the viewer.
