AKA. Les beaux jours
Director: Marion Vernoux
Starring: Fanny Ardant, Laurent Lafitte

From France comes Bright Days Ahead, a romance/comedy about casual sex, adultery and retirement. Caroline is 60, married, a grandmother and retired from dentistry. Boredom soon sets in so she joins a senior's club called Bright Days Ahead, taking on computer studies. There she meets and has an affair with Julian (Laurent Lafitte) a man young enough to be her son.

All goes well until her husband finds out and Caroline must choose between her faithful husband of 30 years and her lover who is having casual sex with every woman in town. Ardent is natural as Caroline, delivering a tender performance as the lady who breaks the golden rule of marriage, who takes a chance and knowingly commits adultery just because it feels right.

Bright Days Ahead is not a laugh out comedy. A humorous script has Caroline in many funny predicaments and her husband (Patrick Chesnais) delivers most of the witty one-liners. Ardent and Lafitte surprisingly have sex appeal as the mismatched lovers, emitting an overdose of sensuality throughout. The erotic scenes are realistic and tastefully done.

Adversely, the movie's running time of 98 minutes is too long. The final act just seemed to ramble on once the story had obviously concluded, as if the producers demanded the movie to reach the targeted running time.
