Golden Years
aka Nos années folles
First screened in October 2017
Director: André Téchiné. Cast: Céline Sallette, Pierre Deladonchamps, Virginie Pradal, Michael Fau, Grégoire Leprince-Ringuet, Peter Bonke, Mama Prassinos, Axelle Equinet. Screenplay: André Téchiné and Cédric Anger (based on the book La garçonne et l'assassine by Fabrice Virgili and Daniele Voldman).

Twitter Capsule: Téchiné's deceptively subdued style still yields Louvre-ready images. Story not always served by a fussy structure.

VOR:   Stranger-than-fiction gender-bending story finds interesting ways to foreground performance as theme, though it struggles more with conveying identity.
