    Comedy

    Adrien is a modern-day Peter Pan. In his early thirties already, he still behaves like a kid. He became a successful child actor, but that was more than ten years ago, and today Adrien has neither fame nor money left. He has to move back with his parents to start fresh. Caught in the middle between a return as an actor he imagines a triumph and a possible love interest, Adrien’s path will be full of obstacles.

    Director's Statement

    What a process to become a man! Discovering independence, the vertigo of the first steps and the excitement of a new world. Being the son of a psychologist, I always thought I was one step ahead of my peers. As if my mother’s work gave me wisdom and an innate maturity. What a disappointment it was when I took my first steps in adult life! Yet I was ready for existence, armed with family theories and ready-to-use intellectual schemes. Unfortunately, to grow up, to gain maturity, you also have to let go. And I had to abandon the beliefs of childhood, betray my maternal heritage, and make all the beginner’s mistakes. That was the starting point of the film.

    Press

    An enjoyable shaggy-dog story that’s somewhere between early Woody Allenand the bluesy Paris-set coming-of-age romances of Christophe Honoré.

    Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter

    A tender, enjoyable film, with Lacoste’s eminently relaxed style making Adrien as appealing as he is often appalling, while de Bary emerges as a smart director with a strong feel for character, especially male neurosis.

    France

    Antoine de Bary was only just out of school when he started working on film shoots in a variety of roles, from floor manager to prop man, from production coordinator to casting assistant. As an assistant director, he worked with young auteurs on their first films, as well as more experienced directors, such as Xavier Giannoli and Cédric Klapisch. Fiction remained his passion and in 2016, he completed his first short, L'ENFANCE D'UN CHEF (2016), starring Vincent Lacoste and Félix Moati, selected at the 55th Semaine de la Critique and winner of the Canal+ Award. His feature film debut MY DAYS OF GLORY (2019) was selected at the 76th Venice International Film Festival in the Orizzonti section.
