LA BELLE EPOQUE
Thursday 23 January 2020 at 2.30pm and 7.30pm
Victor (Auteuil) is a disillusioned 60-something who feels alienated by the modern technologies that his psychoanalyst wife (Fanny Ardant) can’t live without. When she throws him out, he meets Antoine (Guillaume Canet), the creator of a high-end re-enactment service that enables wealthy customers to live in the era of their choice. Victor doesn’t hesitate for a second; he wants to go back to a rainy day in 1975, to a little bistro in Lyon, when he first met his greatest love – his wife. His hope? By replaying the past, he might change the present… Making full use of gorgeous sets and a superb cast, director Nicolas Bedos delivers an ingenious and sophisticated drama that reflects on love, memory and nostalgia.
French with English subtitles.
