Storyline

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. Written by Pathé

Can correct date be put in for this film?
28 November 2019 | by mark_dowieSee all my reviews

Other than IMDB dating this film to 1992 (there is a Spanish film of the same name from that year) I have no issues really. Charmingly acted by Auteuil and Ardant, it is a pleasant and amusing, if somewhat elaborate, fantasy about re-discovering a youthful love.
