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.
We've seen variations on the character before. But Fanny Ardant's performance as the straitlaced wife ... is insightful and note-perfect.
Ardant might wrestle with alienation, but Bright Days Ahead never risks alienating its self-satisfied target audience.
"Bright Days Ahead" offers an interesting twist on the May-December romance.
The well-observed script touches on a number of everyday issues about the aging process - whether you're pushing 40 or passing 60 - that add a tender and enlightening layer to this engaging, leisurely paced film.
Struggling to get out from under the film's too-cheery surface is a much more serious movie about grown-ups confronting the depredations of old age.
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.
Bright Days Ahead is a fitting title for a story about one woman's transition at a turning point of her life where time is no longer her enemy, but her anchor.
A fine performance from Fanny Ardant elevates Marion Vernoux's intriguing if rarely riveting study of late-life passion.
Bright Days is fairly lightweight stuff but Ardant's performance lends it conviction and poignancy.
A lightweight but sincere glimpse at starting life when many are ending it.
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.
