15 cinema age rating  

Victor Drumond jumps at the chance to relive the night he met the love of his life. He knows everything is staged by a crew and actors, but suspending disbelief can have powerful effects. What happens to fiction when it meets reality? Nicolas Bedos directs this French-language romantic comedy-drama, which stars Daniel Auteuil, Guillaume Canet, Doria Tillier and Fanny Ardant.

Full film details

Victor Drumond’s (Daniel Auteuill) life, now that he’s in his 60s, just isn’t as fun as it used to be. Not to mention his marriage to Marianne (Fanny Ardant) has lost its spark. So, when an entrepreneur named Antoine (Guillaume Canet) offers him the opportunity to go back in time, of course Victor says yes.

Except, it’s not really time travel. Everything is staged, with actors playing the parts that people actually lived. Victor knows this but agrees to go ahead anyway. Of all the periods in history he could choose, he decides to revisit May 16, 1974 – the night he met Marianne, his great love.

Antoine is in the background, manipulating the whole scene, while Margot (Doria Tillier) plays the leading role of Marianne. While it’s all a beautifully crafted illusion, Victor can’t get enough of it…and it begins to affect relationships in reality.

Daniel Auteuil (Remi, Nobody’s Boy, Le brio), Guillaume Canet (Non-fiction, Cezanne et Moi), Doria Tillier (Mr & Mrs Adelman) and Fanny Ardant (My Mother Is Crazy, Waiting for You) star in this French-language romantic comedy-drama, directed by Nicolas Bedos (Mr & Mrs Adelman), about a man longing to rekindle the happier feelings of days gone by.
