Noemie Lovsvsky has been around in French films and directed them for the last 18 years but she is discreet and has made her way slowly but surely. She is signing with Camille Rewinds a sweet bitter comedy that anyone can relate to. She tells a story of a 40 year old woman who needs to make amends, who needs to change her past somehow. New Year's Eve come and there she is brought back in her past. Her past is in the 80's and the director has paid extreme attention to details. You will recognize the beddings, the home accessories, kitchen details that come from the 80's and you will be transported yourself to that era. Camille needs to tell something to her mother and she does. The story is intertwined with comedy and tragic moments, you laugh and then you cry, it is a roller-coaster of emotions ! The director shows that love, death, passion roll together; she is sensitive to sight, scent, touch, taste (for the champagne) and hearing !! When you loved someone you loved their sight, scent, touch, voice, you feel all of that in the film. This film is a love letter to old acquaintances that should not be forgotten.
