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 is that by replaying the past he might change the present. Filmed on gorgeous sets and featuring a superb cast, director Nicolas Bedos (Mr & Mrs Adelman) delivers an ingenious and sophisticated drama that reflects on love, memory and nostalgia.

Also showing at Ciné Lumière from 22 November.
