Why Is Nostalgia So Painful?

(Gerhard G./Pixabay)

In the French film La Belle Époch, wealthy Parisians pay to experience moments from history. Be it dinner with Napoleon, lunch with Mussolini, or a date with their future wife.

It’s a clever film with French old-timer Daniel Auteuil playing an ageing and disillusioned cartoonist whose marriage is on the rocks.
