Movie Info

The story centers on Paul Dédalus, an anthropologist preparing to leave Tajikistan, who has a series of flashbacks that include his childhood in Roubaix, his mother's attacks of madness and his father's alienating depression. He remembers his 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 as well as remembering Esther, the beautiful, rude love of his life.

Critic Reviews for My Golden Days (Trois Souvenirs De Ma Jeunesse)

All Critics (77) | Top Critics (30)

Two beautifully modulated central performances and an accomplished sense of pacing are undone by the weary drone of familiarity in this lovelorn French melodrama from the writer-director Arnaud Desplechin.

Don't be put off by the subtitles - this is one of the great modern teen movies.

March 15, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Desplechin's film-making language is always fluent and rich.

March 15, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

This quasi-autobiographical trilogy is further proof that AD is the Proust of modern French cinema.

March 14, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Impeccably staged and played, this scattershot reflection on the follies, glories and regrets of youth pays affectionate tribute to a world of handwritten letters and payphones that has all but disappeared.

March 14, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

My Golden Days isn't perfect, but much like memories of our own youth, I'm not entirely certain it is meant to be, and as such the film becomes a far more emotionally powerful endeavor because of this.
