Magnolia Pictures has picked up all US rights from Wild Bunch to Arnaud Desplechin’s Directors’ Fortnight selection My Golden Days (Trois Souvenirs De Ma Jeunesse).
Mathieu Amalric and newcomers Quentin Dolmaire and Lou Roy-Lecollinet star in the story about an anthropologist detained upon his return to France who recounts his memorable life story to the authorities.
Desplechin and Julie Peyr wrote the screenplay and Pascal Caucheteux of Why Not Productions produced.
“Arnaud Desplechin is a true master and in My Golden Days he gives us another incredibly radiant, wise, funny and human film,” said Magnolia president Eamonn Bowles. “We’re thrilled to be handling such a gem.”
