An emotionally distressed woman goes in search of her lost youth in this bittersweet French time-travel comedy. 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 Eric after 25 happy years together. In the depths of her boozy despair, at a snowy new year’s eve party, she experiences a kind of fairy-tale flash- back and wakes up in 1985. She is still attending school, her late mother is alive again, and she has a bright yellow portable cassette player buzzing with cheesy 80’s Europop hits. Fate, it seems, has granted Camille a second chance. 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. (Stephen Dalton)
