Advance on receipts from the CNC for Arnaud Desplechin’s My Golden Years
Arnaud Desplechin

Twelve feature-film projects have been accepted this summer, during the third 2014 session of the CNC’s advance on receipts. Featuring among the seven titles selected by the second committee is My Golden Years by Arnaud Desplechin. With its shoot having been under way for several weeks now in Northern France, the director’s eighth fiction feature revolves around Paul Dédalus, an anthropological researcher in his forties who is getting ready to go back to France. Images from his childhood start coming back to him… memories of Paris, Moscow and, above all, Roubaix. The cast includes Mathieu Amalric and Patrick d'Assumçao. The film sees Why Not Productions at the helm and is co-produced by France 2 Cinéma. With a pre-purchase by Canal+, the title has also received backing from Pictanovo, among others. Distribution in France will be handled by Le Pacte and international sales by Wild Bunch. For the record, Desplechin has taken part in the competition at Cannes five times (The Sentinel in 1992, My Sex Life… or How I Got into an Argument in 1996, Esther Kahn in 2000, A Christmas Tale [+see also:
