Critic Reviews for Bright Days Ahead
This engaging French comedy has Fanny Ardant in Mrs Robinson mode as an improbably glamorous retired dentist who has an affair with a younger man.June 20, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
To the film's credit, no one finds the age gap that scandalous, but that doesn't mean it doesn't matter. These are people at very different places in life.
Don't hold your breath, or your heart: it's not exactly Brief Encounter. But Ardant has the moves. It's the younger cast members who must struggle to keep up.
Ardant gives a performance you just want to bask in, glowing with desire and desirability while avoiding cougarish mother-figure clichs.
We've seen variations on the character before. But Fanny Ardant's performance as the straitlaced wife ... is insightful and note-perfect.June 17, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
Fitfully amusing and poignant in its insights into ageing, this cross-generational fling saga lacks the character and depth to say anything genuinely significant.June 16, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
