Ruiz's breathtaking reimagining of the final, almost unfilmable volume of Marcel Proust's Remembrance of Things Past is one of the great cinematic adaptations.

The director's free-floating and often oneiric style is brilliantly wedded to Proust's time-shifting and memory-fuelled prose as the bedridden author freely ranges over the incidents and figures of his life.

Alongside his recent Mysteries of Lisbon, this is one of Ruiz's richest and most sumptuous adaptations, featuring a star-studded cast including Emmanuelle BĂ©art, Catherine Deneuve, John Malkovich, Vincent Perez, Marie-France Pisier and Edith Scob.
