My Days Of Glory

A tender, enjoyable film, with Lacoste’s eminently relaxed style making Adrien as appealing as he is often appalling.
Johnathan Romney, SCREEN INTERNATIONAL

OFFICIAL SELECTION – 2019 VENICE FILM FESTIVAL (Horizons)

The wry and engaging comedy debut from Antoine de Bary, loosely inspired by his own family, MY DAYS OF GLORY tells the a story of a former child star whose life’s in a downward spiral as he approaches thirty, taking influence not only from the 60’s New Wave but the shaggy-dog indies of Gen-X USA.

Vincent Lacoste (in a welcome return to his comedic roots) stars as Adrien, the definition of an anti-hero: self-absorbed, unemployed and sponging shamelessly off his parents. A promising career as an actor in his youth has led to virtually nothing since; he bounces from audition to audition, barely getting by with finely-honed sarcasm skills and a severe case of denial.

So Adrien can’t quite believe it when a German director seems interested in casting him as the lead in a big-budget biopic of Charles de Gaulle, to whom he purportedly bears a strong resemblance. Unfortunately, the apron string ties to a subsidised easy life with his psychoanalyst mother and wayward father (a superb Emmanuelle Devos and vanity-free Christophe Lambert) are bound so tight, it’s going to take Adrien far more than wisecracks to break free of them…
