Not Here To Be Loved is about a man called Jean-Claude (Chesnais), whose 51st birthday is approaching, but alone and loveless. As a bailiff in a family firm, his only day-to-day contact is serving court orders to people who hate and fear him. His weekly visits to his monstrous father (Wilson) at a nursing home are marked by resentment and aggression, while he struggles to hold a conversation with his adult son (Couton) who has reluctantly joined the business.
When his doctor suggests that his heart needs exercise, Jean-Claude crosses over from his office to the tango school opposite, where he meets 30-something Francoise (Consigny), who also has a longing for change as she drifts inexorably towards marriage to self-absorbed would-be novelist Thierry (Abelanski). With little in common besides resigned disappointment, Jean-Claude and Françoise dance up a restrained sort of romance together. Love unexpectedly blossoms in the man's autumn years.
Entry is free for members of the Hyderabad Film Club. Please contact 2373-0841 for further details.
