      Kevin Maher Times (UK) 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. Rated: 2/5 Mar 16, 2018 Full Review David Jenkins Little White Lies Don't be put off by the subtitles - this is one of the great modern teen movies. Rated: 5/5 Mar 15, 2018 Full Review Peter Bradshaw Guardian Desplechin's film-making language is always fluent and rich. Rated: 3/5 Mar 15, 2018 Full Review Dustin Chang Floating World Utterly believable and charming in its sincerity, Trois Souvenirs puts any bombastic films looking back at one's life to shame. Feb 14, 2021 Full Review Nicholas Bell Glossy, and distractingly nostalgic, My Golden Days is Desplechin at his most pleasant and potentially least ambitious, but enjoyable nonetheless. Rated: 3.5/5 Sep 30, 2020 Full Review Rachel Brook One Room With A View Though consistently amusing, the narrative direction and central themes of My Golden Days are too confused for it to serve as anything more than light entertainment. Rated: 3/5 Apr 18, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      jaime h thoroughly enjoyable and made wonderfully! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie eventhough made in modern days gives us a classic vibes and feels. The romantic mood with a touch of melancholy makes us get lost in in it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member A lovingly relaxed view of young love and all that intense emotion. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member An excellent work of film-making with extraordinary performances by Quentin Dolmaire and Lou Roy-Lecollinet. I love the elusiveness of her character and the so obvious and intense adoration between them. Such torrid love amid the early section where he shows such fearlessness when helping his 'twin' escape the USSR and giving Kovalki hell early and the end of the film. The last scene is utter perfection. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review john s Harking back to the glory days of French cinema, when Francois Truffaut introduced super cool Parisian chic to the world, "My Golden Days" (a terrible translation of "Trois Souvenirs de ma Jeunesse") colourfully captures the carefree escapades of wild, romantic youth. Everyone is cool. Everyone smokes. Everyone is busy living the life they will soon relish only in glazed-eyed memories. This a well acted, lovely tale of a couple of kids, stumbling through adult weight emotions, baggage and heartbreak. "My Golden Days" isn't so much a fond ode to lost youth, as it is a reminder that the crux of life may come at any time, and can be cruelly short. The French love it, bestowing a slew of film awards as proof, and you may too. - hipCRANK Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Being young, having a beautiful girlfriend and other things that had done! They say its a prequel to the 1996 film 'My Sex Life' that I haven't seen, but this looked good and its not. I'm not sure how much one has to be familiar with the original film, though it does not matter much I think since it is a prequel. Because everything starts here and follows there. So I saw it, and I wanted to like it, but not fully impressed. The story was told in chapters. The opening was like some kind of a spy thriller, but soon when the episode 'Esther' begins, it turned into a romance drama. A man who has been investigated when another person with the same identity was found. So he reveals his school day's events, followed by his first girlfriend and complication surrounding it he had faced. That, how he had won her over the older boys and about his close friend, till leaving them behind to work in the central Asia. Mostly it is a love story with some twists in the affair, but how it all ends still remains mystery even after the narration ended. The issue is it is not detailing anything, just reveals events of a youngster's romance life. Particularly the end was not good. So I think that's why I need to see the first film, resuming the narration could continue from where this one concluded. I leave (_b_l_a_n_k__s_p_a_c_e_) till I saw that and update this review, if I change my stance over this one. Even if I didn't like, still I would update it. Meanwhile back to the review; it is like a French version of 'Flashbacks of a Fool'. Technically, there's no fault in this, only the screenplay did not convince me. The actors were so good, no doubt its a well made film that some people would enjoy it and I hope you are one of those. 6/10 Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
