MY GOLDEN DAYS REVIEWED
“My Golden Days” is a loving memory of a man’s time growing up in the 1980s. However, the French melancholy and the postmodern self referencing was a bit too much for me. Your enjoyment of the film will hinge on how much Mathieu Amalric you can stand. Yeah, the Esther segment makes up a huge chunk of the film and you get more of the younger actors. But, it’s a certain kind of a film that plays like a lazy international take on Linklater. I’d recommend a rental or stream first.
