L'Âge des ténèbres (The Age of Ignorance) (Days of Darkness)
In his dreams, Jean-Marc is a knight in shining armor, a star of stage and screen and a successful author who has women falling at his feet and into his bed. In reality, Jean-Marc is a nobody civil servant, insignificant husband, failed father and closet smoker. Will Jean-Marc be able to resist the temptations of his dreamland or will he decide to carve out a life of his own?

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An kai mayrohioymoristika apolaystiko, san American Beauty (1999) se pio allegro diathesi, ta Hronia tis Mayrilas ehoyn stin ekseliksi toys mia kapoia amihania, poy se krata monimos sto ypotoniko epipedo ton hahaniton"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"...a staggeringly disappointing effort from a genuinely talented filmmaker."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Denys Arcand's follow-up to the superb Barbarian Invasion is a disappointingly acid-streaked, misanthropic satire about a Walter Mitty-like Everyman whose elaborately imagined fantasy life masks deep, unflinching pathological resentment"
