With his diploma in his pocket, Julien left his native Normandy to build a bigger life for himself in Paris, leaving his memories behind. And then one day, one has to come back, and that day his memories jump in his face.
With so many RomComs about nostalgia, regret, and looking backward, you’d think the topic had been covered. Enter writer/director Amélie Bonnin. Part musical, part dramedy, Bye Bye explores the wistfulness of an alternate reality: requited love. This film is funny, relatable, optimistic, and just so damn good. On top of it all, Bye Bye sticks the landing, delivering a tear-filled laugh out loud. — Erin Brown Thomas, Artistic Director
