I Got Life! (Aurore)

Dir. Blandine Lenoir. France, 2017. 1h 29m. French/subs. Starring Agnès Jaoui, Thibault de Montalembert, Pascale Arbillot, Sarah Suco, Lou Roy-Lecollinet, Nicolas Chupin.

A middle-aged woman’s life is turned upside down by the return of a former lover who reignites her lust for life. Agnes Jaoui gives an intelligent and affecting performance in this witty heart-warmer.

There is much pleasure to be had in Jaoui’s joyful performance, in the film’s celebration of female solidarity and in its challenge to out culture’s disparagement of older women.’ Ginette Vincenteau, Sight and Sound Magazine.

’It’s warm and open-hearted depiction of a woman on the verge helps to power it through to a satisfactory, if not life-altering close’ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
