Movie Info

A senior technophobe and his wife are married by law but very little binds them together in romance. The wife is openly unfaithful and obvious with her mockery of her husband. After they split, the husband takes the opportunity to go back in time by using the latest technology for the experience, but what happens when he chooses the day he met his wife?

Critic Reviews for La Belle Époque

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (3)

It's comedy-drama that is not funny enough to count as a comedy and not plausible enough to count as a drama.

Where so many high-concept romantic comedies squander their one big idea, "La Belle Époque" leverages its own to remind how and why we fall in love in the first place...

An entertaining film. [Full review in Spanish]

November 4, 2021 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

There are hints of The Game, It's a Wonderful Life and The Truman Show, but this clever, funny, one-step- ahead-of-you script is really quite unique. Fantastic.

Instead of moving into any humorous exploration of the underlayers of the human condition, Bedos presents everything a bit like an outdated vaudeville-esque show.
