“La Belle Époque” is a 2019 French romantic comedy-drama film that follows Victor, a man in his sixties feeling dissatisfied with life. Everything changes when Antoine, a businessman, offers him an opportunity: a blend of virtual theater and historical reenactments. In this world, people can go back to any time they desire. Victor decides to revisit the most significant days of his life – the moments 40 years ago when he encountered his true love.

“La Belle Époque” will be screened at 7 p.m. on Jan. 6 at Galaxy Cinema Mipec Long Bien, Mipec Long Bien Shopping Center, Long Bien District. Tickets cost VND75,000 ($3).

Recorded in New York City, “Round About Midnight” features performances by artists such as John Coltrane, Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones.
