La belle époque | Ratings & Reviews

"This French slice of boomer romantic nostalgia wish-fulfillment unexpectedly charmed me, its premise (company creates extremely immersive fantasies for individual customers) proving remarkably easy to swallow."


"A charming and witty French romantic comedy – timely and relevant in this period of uncertainty and introspection, but also perfect for a light-hearted escape into the past."


"Writer-director Nicolas Bedos has more credits as an actor and writer than he does as director, so it shows astonishing promise that in only his third feature at the helm he mixes wit, imagination and insight into this fantastically enjoyable romp."

"A French screwball comedy that challenges 2017's C'est La Vie's crown, a relationship drama to rival Gallic classic Belle du Jour and a twinkling daydream that will evoke memories of Amelie, La Belle Epoque is your next must-see cinematic experience."


"Joyously complex and infectiously joyful."


"It's comedy-drama that is not funny enough to count as a comedy and not plausible enough to count as a drama."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"Where so many high-concept romantic comedies squander their one big idea, "La Belle Époque" leverages its own to remind how and why we fall in love in the first place..."


"Everything clicks here, all the time."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"A sweet, inventive Richard Curtis-style romantic-comedy crowdpleaser that deftly balances hearty laughs and heartwarming emotion."
