La Belle Époque

Belle Époque

In this high-concept comedy from Nicolas Bedos (Mr. & Mrs. Adelman), a luddite cartoonist suffering an existential crisis hires a VR company to recreate a happier time in his marriage, as he tries to reconcile the golden-hued past with an inescapable digital present.

This high-concept comedy from Nicolas Bedos (Mr. & Mrs. Adelman) shrewdly taps into our current technological anxieties and our most basic desire to revisit our glory days. Starring Daniel Auteuil, Fanny Ardant, and Guillaume Canet, La Belle Époque blurs historical eras while tracking a charismatic curmudgeon's existential reckoning.


Critical Notes

"Where so many high-concept romantic comedies squander their one big idea, "La Belle Époque" leverages its own to remind how and why we fall in love in the first place..." - Peter Debruge, Variety
