LA BELLE EPOQUE is a French romantic comedy drama in which a disillusioned elderly man seeks to recreate the events of a week in 1974 when he met the great love of his life.

Language

There is strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder bad language including uses of 'bitch', 'bastard', 'bullshit', 'dipshit', 'shit', 'piss', 'asshole', 'ass', 'crap', 'balls', 'slut', 'screw you', 'jerk', 'damn', 'jeez'. 'oh my God' and 'hell'. There is also use of discriminatory language ('fags').

Sex

There are scenes of sexual activity which include breast and buttock nudity, thrusting and implied oral sex. There are also strong verbal sex references.

Drugs

People smoke marijuana in reconstructed party scenes. There are also verbal references to obtaining drugs.

In a reconstruction of a nineteenth century dinner party, in which people play the roles of guests and servants, a black servant is referred to in condescending and discriminatory terms. A dinner party guest is given a kiss by the black servant who bites his tongue out. The violence and gore are not real, and discrimination is not condoned.
