It's very rare for me to watch rom-coms, let alone pay to see one in the cinema. I'd read about La Belle Époque following its strong reception at Cannes. The concept sounded intriguing so I decided to give the dice a roll.
Let's just say it didn't disappoint. I floated out the Cine Lumiere in London feeling like I'd witnessed something unique, entertaining and deeply moving.
If The Game and The Truman show got together and decided to make a French romantic comedy about marriage and the cracks that invariably establish over time, La Belle Époque is what it'd look like. The message is strong but never heavy handed, the comedy is sharp but never distracting.
Highly recommend this one to all film lovers. It's a movie I can see myself watching many times again.
