Full of esprit, charm and truth, this French comedy plays with the question as to whether everything really was better in the old days. For Victor (Daniel Auteuil) the years of success as an cartoonist are over. And his wife Marianne (Fanny Ardant) has also decided that he should now only be part of her past. So an offer from an event agency is a godsend for Victor, fast approaching 70: they allow customers to enjoy the epoch of their choice – with the aid of expensive sets and film casts. Victor plumps for the year 1974 and the day he met his wife. The combination of neon lights, flared trousers and loads of cigarette smoke become for Victor a kind of elixir of life, at whose centre the enchanting actress Margot (Doria Tillier) blurs the borders between then and now.
