Victor, a disillusioned sexagenarian, sees his life turned upside down on the day when Antoine, a brilliant entrepreneur, offers him a new kind of attraction: mixing theatrical artifices and historical reconstruction, this company offers his clients a chance to dive back into the era of their choice. Victor then chose to relive the most memorable week of his life: the one where, 40 years earlier, he met the great love.


    There are a lot of layers in the storytelling, and Bedos does a great job of pacing them, maintaining a good rhythm throughout. It allows for an easy and pleasant movie-going experience, highlighting how well the French know how to produce crowd-pleasers - and this is every bit a crowd-pleaser. The romance is so pure, and there are genuine laugh-out-loud moments. I would have liked to have seen more, because while it raises such intriguing ideas, and you're left feeling a bit hollow with how it all ends. It doesn't quite reach the heights of some of its cinematic predecessors, but you will leave with warm fuzzy feelings inside - and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. - Joel Kalkopf Read Joel's full article...
