The morning before New Year’s Eve, Camille gets dumped by Eric, the only man she’s ever loved. She passes out at the end of the evening and wakes up in the bedroom of her 16-year-old self... in her adult body. She sees her school friends, her late parents (who are still alive) and Eric as he was when she met him. A twist on Coppola’s Peggy Sue Got Married, Camille Rewinds joyfully dives back into the emotional throes of adolescence. From ill-advised fashion choices to endless existential questioning, Camille (Noémie Lvovsky), from her adult perspective, infuses every moment with a fresh breeziness and whimsicality—but also with intense nostalgia, since she knows the exact day her loved ones will die. She’s back at the beginning with full awareness of how it will all end. Just as comfortable playing eccentric characters as she is filming them, Noémie Lvovsky invents the cinematic family of her dreams, whose often-hilarious antics still manage to resonate like an echo of memory. Camille Rewinds is a fascinating exercise in recapturing the past.
