Les Beaux Jours

Bright Days Ahead
1 member

Bright days ahead? Caroline has retired, at last. A new life lies before her: time to take care of her children, her husband, and, most of all, herself. However, she soon comes to realize that this new freedom is synonymous with boredom and idleness. Especially when she receives a membership to her neighborhood’s senior club as a birthday present… Reluctant at first, she nevertheless decides to take the plunge. Oddly enough, she meets great people there, starting with the young computer science teacher, who is far from insensitive to her charms. Caroline gradually takes control of her life again and lives a second youth: taking a new lover, living new experiences, breaking the rules, not doing what’s expected of her… Who said that retirement was the beginning of the end and not a new beginning?

Au début je me suis dit: faire le film sur ce duo d'acteurs, ça fonctionnera pas. Et puis ça colle, aussi simplement que la scène de l'ascenseur. Et puis tout le groupe et Patrick Chesnais... J'ai bien aimé aussi la façon dont la plage est filmée aussi.
