La Belle Epoque (15)
French romantic comedy drama in which a disillusioned elderly man seeks to recreate the events of a week in 1974 when he met the great love of his life,
Daniel Auteuil stars as Victor, a man in his 60s whose long marriage to Marianne (Fanny Ardant) is on the rocks. Then Victor meets Antoine (Guillaume Canet), the owner of a company which allows people to perform a version of “time travel” by visiting a set where the company acts out a staged historical re-enactment. Victor seizes the opportunity to revisit the moment when he first met Marianne, in the hope of rekindling his love for her.
