NOMINATED FOR 13 CESAR AWARDS "Charming french rom-com parties like it's 1985." A woman goes in search of her lost youth in this bittersweet French time-travel comedy. A strong local crowd pleaser in Cannes, this universal story of love and regret closed the Directors' Fortnight and picked up the Prix SACD before going on to become a box office hit in France. Noémie Lvovsky directs, co-writes and stars as Camille, a 40-year-old Parisian drowning in alcoholic anguish after splitting up from her former childhood sweetheart Éric (Samir Guesmi) after 25 happy years together. In the depths of her boozy despair, at a snowy New Year's Eve party in 2008, she experiences a kind of fairy-tale flashback and wakes up in 1985. She is attending school, her late mother is alive still, and she has a bright yellow portable cassette player buzzing with cheesy 1980s Europop hits. Fate, it seems, has granted Camille a second chance. With the wisdom of hindsight, she struggles to rewrite history, resisting classmate Éric's advances to save her adult self from future heartbreak. But destiny is not so easily persuaded, and Camille eventually comes to learn that some life choices can be changed while others must simply be embraced.
