"Trois souvenirs de ma jeunesse" (French title). This is one of the best movies ever made specific to the genre. "My Golden Days" is the prequel to " Comment je me suis disputé... (ma vie sexuelle))" (1996, "My Sex Life... or How I Got into an Argument"). Both movies are the memoirs of the character Paul Dedalus played at different times in life by Mathieu Amalric. "My Golden Days" is Paul's reflection on his life as a middle aged, successful man looking back over his surprising (or not so surprising) life. It focuses heavily on youthful misadventures and a lost love. The first time I saw it in a theater I said that up to the half-way point it was one of the best movies I had ever seen. Then it does loose it's way a bit. However all is forgiven by the last 3 minutes and esp. the very final sentence uttered. Enchantingly bittersweet with standout performances by Quentin Dolmaire as the youthful Paul Dedalus and Lou Roy-Lecollinet as Paul's lost, but unforgettable love, Esther.
