"You're quite the traveler." Magnolia Pictures has unveiled their official trailer for Arnaud Desplechin's new film My Golden Days, which first premiered at last year's Cannes Film Festival (Desplechin has been to Cannes before with A Christmas Tale and Jimmy P). The film is about an aging anthropologist reflecting on his life, mainly focusing on his childhood and a formative trip to Russia, but most of all his love for a woman named Esther, played by Lou Roy-Lecollinet. The full cast features Quentin Dolmaire and Mathieu Amalric playing Paul Dédalus at different ages. This does indeed look like an "evocative portrait of youth" and an emotional story about the unforgettable people we meet in life. Looking forward to seeing it myself.
Here's the official US trailer for Arnaud Desplechin's My Golden Days, in high def from Apple:
The story of Paul Dédalus, an anthropologist preparing to leave Tajikistan (played in his middle age by Matheiu Amalric). 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, the beautiful, rude, haughty soul and love of his life. My Golden Days is directed by French filmmaker Arnaud Desplechin (of A Christmas Tale, Jimmy P.), from a screenplay written by Desplechin & Julie Peyr. Magnolia will release My Golden Days starting March 16th.
Looks good. Amalric's face is forever imprinted with his character from CASINO ROYALE.

I hope he won't repeat anything like Bond. It may sound elitist, but I think he's better actor than that.

That looks good in every respect. Nostalgic, romantic, European, French, sexy, elegiac even and what not. Of course, it does not have to be the best film ever, but it is very likable indeed and believably good enough to watch ...
