Based on the concluding installment of Marcel Proust's literary masterpiece, "Remembrance of Things Past," a dying Proust reflects upon his life from his deathbed, remembering many of the people who've affected and influenced him during the course of his adult life, from the 1880s to the early 1920s. Among them are Odette, a beautiful woman who's succeeded in life, but whose husband betrays her with both a female actress and a male pianist. The husband prefers the company of military men to that

Even if it lacks the emotional power of Manuel, Time Regained is a lot closer to Ruiz's best work than it is to his worst.
The stream-of-consciousness structure effectively captures a mind lost in thought; what it doesn't effectively create, however, is drama.
Moody, opulent, and just decadent enough, Ruiz's film is elegant all over and perverse around the edges, just as it should be.
A film that captures the richness of Proust's writing and the peculiarity of his sensibility through an array of unlikely imagery and staging techniques.
The best way to experience Time Regained is to let each vignette become an oar for rowing across the sea of Proust's memories.
Ruiz gracefully weaves through flashbacks triggered by sights, sounds, and thoughts, effortlessly ricocheting from remembrance to remembrance.
