playing Rf7 is better than Re7. The rook on f8 can't attack and help win the f-pawn. So after ...Rf7 Qa6 Re5 wins the pawn.
If white plays Kf2 in the endgame. then you can play Re5, keeping to your plan. then move your king to the other side behind the rook.

Interesting game. I play the French defence too - that line with 2.f4 is unusual and I can't remember anyone playing that against me.
I think that after he played 22. Qb7 you could have taken his f pawn with your queen, since if he took your queen with his rook you could mate with Re1. In fact his only defence would have been to play Qf3 (since moving the rook would allow mate on f1) when you can swap queens and then play Re2 winning at least another pawn. This same bank rank mating theme by decoying the rook also occurs at other places in the game...
