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

“Amusingly offbeat and easygoing. Vincent Lacoste continues his winning streak playing certified losers… and this a role perfectly catered to his talent for playing a total mess who’s at once naïve, charming, slightly seductive and heartbreakingly vulnerable. Like other Lacostian characters, we ultimately love this one not because of what he does or who he becomes, but because he remains painfully, comically and inevitably himself.”
Jordan Mintzer, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

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.

In a welcome return to his comedic roots, Vincent Lacoste (Amanda, Sorry Angel) 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…
