The plot allows you to discover more about each of the characters in this endearing band. Without highlighting, and thanks to a lot of humour, the film is also more committed to its subject.

Thierry spends his days classifying his family photos, convinced that the best is behind him. When Claire, his wife, tired of “it was better before”, announces to him that she is leaving him, Thierry, devastated, offers him to redo “Greece 98”, their best family vacation. Officially, he wants to spend one last week with their children before announcing their separation. Unofficially he hopes to win back his wife… But the children, now in their thirties, are less docile than 20 years ago and the hunt for memories on the roads of Greece will quickly tire everyone. By trying to rekindle the flame of his couple, Thierry risks setting fire to his family…
Carried by a fresh cast, mixing Jacques Gamblin and Pascale Arbillot for the parents, and the actors Pablo Pauly (seen in the film Patients), Agnès Hurstel (comedian and headliner of the series Jeune et golri) and comedian Ludovik for the youngest, this first feature film is a pure holiday comedy. There is nostalgia, family disputes, travel and change of scenery.

But he is quickly adopted by retirees, in particular by a band of 7 inseparable who teach him, each in their own way, their vision of life.

He then decides to organize a great escape, but he is not at the end of his troubles…
The Time of Secrets – Special Screening
The Time of Secrets by Christophe Barratier, with Guillaume De Tonquédec, Mélanie Doutey, François-Xavier Demaison…
Released March 23, 2022
Marseilles, July 1905. The young Marcel Pagnol has just completed his primary studies. In three months, he will enter “high school”. Three months… an eternity when you’re that age. Because it’s vacation time, the real ones, the big ones! A child of the city, this long-awaited return to his dear hills of Aubagne and Allauch, those of “My Father’s Glory” and “My Mother’s Castle” transports him with happiness. There he rediscovers nature, the great outdoors and above all his friend Lili, always ready to share new adventures, at the age when the time of carelessness gives way to that of secrets.
32 years after My Father’s Glory and My Mother’s Castle, directed by Yves Robert and produced by Claude Berri, the sequel to Marcel Pagnol’s Memories of Childhood is finally adapted to the cinema. Christophe Barratier (The Chorists, The War of the Buttons) seizes this third part, The Time of Secrets, and is in line with the previous adaptations, with a solar film, family and respectful of the work of Pagnol, while not hesitating to take liberties in adaptation.
