Arnaud Desplechin’s ‘My Golden Years’ Set For Cannes’ Directors’ Fortnight

PARIS– Arnaud Desplechin’s “My Golden Years” is set to world premiere at the Directors’ Fortnight section of the Cannes film festival.

“With pride and enthusiasm, we are thrilled to announce the presentation of ‘My Golden Years,’ the latest feature directed by Arnaud Desplechin, maybe his best and most moving film,” said Fortnight artistic director Edouard Waintrop.

Waintrop added, “Mathieu Amalric, the young Quentin Dolmaire and Lou Roy-Lecollinet delight us in their excruciating and glowing quest for time and lost loves.”

“My Golden Years,” which is sold by Wild Bunch, was widely expected to premiere in competition at Cannes. The festival’s artistic director and general delegate Thierry Fremaux pointed out it was a strong film that he liked very much, but said he wasn’t able to put it in competition due to the volume of good French films submitted this year and the limited number of slots that can be allocated to Gallic movies.

Wild Bunch already has four pics playing competition — Jacques Audiard’s “Dheepan” (previously titled “Erran”), Hou Hsiao-hsien’s “The Assassin,” Valerie Donzelli’s “Marguerite and Julien” and Hirokazu Kore-eda’s “Our Little Sister.”

Desplechin is a Cannes vet, having presented no fewer than five films in competition.

Waintrop has revamped the image of Directors’ Fortnight since joining three years ago. He has revealed a number of emerging directors and unusual films that ended up being critical and commercial hits, notably Thomas Cailley’s “Love at First Fight” and Guillaume Gallienne’s “Me, Myself and Mum.”

“My Golden Years” will be presented on May 15.
