MY DAYS OF GLORY
MES JOURS DE GLOIRE
Former child star, Adrian had high hopes for his future. As he’s approaching his 30’s, things are not exactly turning out as planned. In addition to his empty love life, he’s been expelled from his flat and had to go back to living with his parents. His life pretty much comes down to chatting up girls in local bars although he seems to have lost that skill too. As his acting career is in trouble and his mood is down, he meets the young and pretty Léa in a police station and hears about an audition to play young French hero Charles de Gaulle...CINEMANIA's opinion :
In 2016, twenty-six year old Antoine de Bary, was part of the “Next Step” program at the Cannes Critics Week (notably at the side of Quebec director François Jaros) where he presented his first short feature film BIRTH OF A LEADER about a young actor played by Vincent Lacoste (SORRY ANGEL) who is offered the lead role in the film of the year playing Charles de Gaulle. Four years later, de Bary is back with his favourite actor in MY DAYS OF GLORY, his first feature film, which continues in the same vein. An existential comedy supported by brilliant actors, such as Noée Abita (GENESIS, SLALOM) and Emmanuelle Devos (VIOLETTE, PERFUMES). The director graciously deals with virility, nostalgia and intimacy.
