About the Movie
Mathieu Amalric reprises the role of Paul Dédalus from My Sex Life…Or How I Got into an Argument. Paul prepares to leave Tajikistan and reflects on his life. He has a series of flashbacks that unfold in three episodes. The first includes his childhood in Roubaix, France. He next recalls a student trip to the USSR, where a clandestine mission led him to offer his identity to a young Russian. Finally, he remembers University life and returning home to party with his sister and shifting circle of friends. Most of all, he remembers Esther, the love of his life.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The story is straightforward; the telling, less so.
Fresh: Desplechin crafts My Golden Days as if he'd never made a movie before, as if youthful emotions were spilling all over it. The result is an exhilarating gift.
Fresh: "My Golden Days" contains an intoxicatingly realistic portrayal of the intense emotionality, the intertwined joy and pain, of first love. It's not the whole film, but its power is so strong it feels like it is.
Fresh: There is serious pain in this movie - pain that endures throughout the years - but also a sincere love for life lived, and life remembered.
Airy yet profound retrospective of a man's formative era, with some turns along the way. Excellent peformances from entire cast. Subtitled for those who do not speak French.
