Main Cast: Daniel Auteuil, Doria Tillier, Guillaume Canet

This is a fantastic French comedy drama. 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 choses to relive the most memorable week of his life: the one where, 40 years earlier, he met his great love. A knock-out cast headed by Daniel Auteuil with Fanny Ardant and a charismatic, eye-catching performnce from Doria Tillier — who will be in Kilkenny to present the film. This is the kind of picture that the French excel at — witty, laugh-out-loud funny and oh so stylish.
