Review: La belle époque

Tres Belle

A big, bold, lushly ludicrous romance, in which a cartoonist leaps back in time to the 1970s, in a funny, moving, intelligent and lovingly crafted crowd-pleaser. Director Nicolas Bedos captures the spirit of a bygone age of quirky film fantasy, giving it a dynamic 21st Century spin. With stars Fanny Ardant and Daniel Auteuil giving their all, it’s an unashamedly old-fashioned, soppy, sentimental, melodramatic and marvellous Gallic cinematic treat.
