A high concept comedy that turns out to smart for its execution, This French comedy follows an old fashioned cartoonist, Victor (Daniel Auteuil) no out of work as print makes way to websites that do not favour cartoons. To make matters worse, his wife, Marianne (Fanny Ardant) is totally modern with her self driving Tesla, virtual reality and artificial intelligence and bored with him. Victor engages in a service called ‘Time Travellers’ that take client their past historical moments.
Victor hicks 1974 where he meets and falls in love with his wife when they first met. Writer/director Bedos (MR. & MRS ADELMAN) creates an original premise blending modern technology with old-fashioned French romance. Bedos edits his film really quickly at quite the manic pace so that the audience has hardly any time to breathe, often forgetting the simplicity of comedy.
Still this is Bedos’ unique style that is still entertaining with this film demanding a Hollywood remake int he future. Auteuil and Ardant are a delight to watch on screen,
