Bright Days Ahead Review

Image for Bright Days Ahead

When retired dentist Caroline (Ardant) meets Julien (Lafitte), a technology instructor at her local senior citizens centre, the sparks fly. But the affair that follows has some unexpected consequences.

★★★★★

Fitfully amusing and poignant in its insights into ageing, this cross-generational fling saga lacks the character and depth to say anything genuinely significant. Glamorous yet vulnerable, Fanny Ardant beguiles, but Laurent Lafitte’s highly resistible as her self-serving beau.

A romance not nearly as seductive as its lead actress.
