A Feature film by Cédric Klapisch

Produced by Vertigo Productions

Release in France : 10/11/1999


    It all begins at the end of the twentieth century. On New Year's Eve, 2000, 24-year-old Arthur gets together with his girlfriend, Lucie. She really wants a baby, but he doesn't feel ready to be a father yet. During the long night of wild partying, Arthur will go through unsettling experiences. He'll be projected seventy years ahead in time and find himself face to face with an old man who claims he's his son… This seventy-year-old son shows him his house, family, life and Arthur discovers what Paris has become in 2070. By showing him this unexpected future, his son hopes to convince Arthur to have a child.

    With the approach of 2000, we notice that the date has been a fantasy that meant 'future'. But, when you go to your nearby laundromat, "Laundro 2000," you find the homeless inside, trying to warm themselves. This seems a far cry from the idea of 2000… When we were small, we thought we'd go to school in flying saucers – not the case at all. Given our expectations, 2000 is a disappointment… "Maybe" says that disappointment shouldn't prevent dreaming. The idea of the future needs to be reinvented.
