With Love … From the Age of Reason (2010)

Only available in Canada, United States

"Dear Me. Today I am seven years old and I'm writing you this letter to help you remember the promises I made when I was 7, and also to remind you of what I want to become..." Thus begins the letter that Margaret receives on her 40th birthday.

An executive at a multinational construction firm, Margaret’s regimented lifestyle revolves around meetings, business dinners and pre-scheduled sex with her partner. But when a retired notary delivers a stack of letters written by Margaret when she was seven years old, the successful professional begins to rethink her existence.

The letters – an exuberant assortment of photographs, vibrant collages, and playful messages – evoke long-forgotten memories and childhood dreams of adventure and true love. Moved by the words of herself at 7, Margaret returns to her childhood village to rediscover the fanciful dreams and playful idealism of her youth…to somehow re-connect with the happy-go-lucky, carefree child she was.

Sophie Marceau, Marton Csokas, Jonathan Zaccaï, Michel Duchaussoy

Amazing movie - more like amazing training for life.

This movie is so well done. Like I was watching a serious high budget movie. Yet I had not hear of it previously.

Watching it could not come at a better time. It is helping me connect with who I am inside. Remembering myself. Sounds silly, but once you have seen this, you will understand.

Beautiful reminder to not forget who we are as women once young girls with big dreams.

I loved it! Fitted right into the theme of my life at the moment...why are we working so hard at becoming something, when if fact all we really need is to become ourselves.

really do not like dealing with subtitles. think they need someone else to do their movie selection as it is paltry, limited, and somewhat trite

First of all I love the title. It is so captivating to me and brings me to the time of that age of enlightenment back in the early 18th century which I have always resonated with. The actress, Sophie reminds me a little of Meg Ryan. For me particularly, I love this film because of Margaret's love for playing the clarinet on my favorite piece, the Mozart Clarinet Concerto. I have said many times myself about how my real happiness was found truly in playing my clarinet even to this day. I even married my true love who plays clarinet himself, with whom I am going to share this film with.
