If you could relive a particular moment of your life, which moment would you choose? Victor is a jaded 60-something cartoonist whose marriage to Marianne is heading for the rocks. Then he gets a chance to travel back in time to the favourite moment in his life–the time in the 1970s when he first met Marianne—hoping to rekindle the dying embers of their relationship. The ‘time travel’ is achieved by watching actors recreate the couples’ first encounter on a stage. This ‘heart-warming allegory’ is an attempt to deal with ‘the ungraspable passage of time.’ Where have the years gone? Why do I feel in essence the same way I felt years (decades!) ago? Writer/director Nicholas Bedos delivers a joyfully nostalgic film, at times poignant, at others whimsical.
