Winner of Directors’ Fortnight, Cannes Film Festival, is a provocative trip down memory lane.
We may not know the future, but we can ponder the past in Arnaud Desplechin’s romantic, coming-of-age tale. For Paul Dédalus, each experience on his journey home evokes memories from his wild youth. He recalls his relationship with his parents and a foray into amateur espionage—but at the heart of it all is Esther, his first love, who taught him what it means to feel deeply and see the world through another’s eyes. Fluid, emotionally resonant, and intensely personal, My Golden Days is more than just nostalgia—it’s a poetic ode to how the past can seep into the present. - Nina Zheng
