Mathieu Amalric as the older Paul Dedalus in My Golden Days

Reflecting on his life, he has a series of flashbacks starting from his childhood in Roubaix—his mother’s attacks of madness, his father’s alienating depression. He remembers a student trip to the USSR, where a clandestine mission led him to offer up his own identity for a young Russian, whom he considered a phantom twin for the remainder of his life. He remembers University life, and returning to his hometown to party with his sister and her best friend, his shifting circle of friends and their casual betrayals. And most of all he remembers Esther (César nominated newcomer Lou Roy-Lecollinet), the beautiful, rude, haughty soul and love of his life.

The critically well-received drama is written and directed by Arnaud Desplechin.
