Time Flies When You're Alive is, literally, a one man show. Repeating his stage performance, actor Paul Linke delivers an exhausting monologue on the subject of his wife's losing battle with cancer. Before the film's 80 minutes have elapsed, the audience is as emotionally drained as Linke. Despite the grim subject matter, Linke peppers his commentary with humor, recalling in vivid (and sometimes profane) detail the high points of his marriage. Prepared for cable television by director Roger Spottiswoode (Air America).
