LA BELLE EPOQUE
Genre: Comedy | Rating: M
Runtime: 115 Minutes
César Award-winning filmmaker Nicolas Bedos’ hilarious La Belle Époque darts between present-day and the wild, wonderful 1970s in a whimsical, witty & romantic tale. Victor (Daniel Auteuil), a 70-something tech-phobic cartoonist, is struggling professionally &personally with his work evaporating & his wife, Marianne (Fanny Ardant) loathing him.
Things take a turn when Victor meets Antoine (Guillaume Canet) who offers a unique theatrical service to revisit memories and play out fantasies through carefully orchestrated re-enactments. Victor decides to relive the most memorable week of his existence, 40 years earlier, when he met the love of his life. A gleefully inventive film that reminds us of who we once were & who we have the potential to become. Dazzling, soul-stirring - ultimately, a heartwarming allegory.
