This film was last shown on 22 March 2018
As Paul Dédalus prepares to leave Tajikistan and return home to Paris, he remembers. He remembers his childhood in Roubaix; his mother's volatile outbursts and his father's alienating depression. He remembers his brother, his sister, his childhood friends and sweethearts. He remembers his trip to the USSR, where a clandestine mission during a high school trip to Minsk led him to offer up his own identity for a young Russian. And he remembers Esther: the beautiful, hot-blooded, dizzying first love of his life.
Released as a companion to the critically acclaimed My Sex Life… Arnaud Desplechin returns with a gorgeous piece of cinema about the magic of memory and warmth of love.
