“For his eighteenth film, André Téchiné has reunited a mythic couple from French cinema (….) Without being a masterpiece, ‘Changing Times’ is a fine film for Téchiné, generous, and sentimental.”
MCinema.com – March Kressman

Antoine arrives in Tangiers from Europe to supervise the building of an audiovisual center. The secret aim of his journey is to link up with Cécile, whom he has continued to love with a silent passion for more than thirty years. Cécile emigrated to North Africa and married Natan, a Jewish-Moroccan doctor. Sami, their son, arrives at his parents’ place with his girlfriend Nadia, who is raising Saïd, a young child. Sami and Nadia help each other to pursue their separate passions. Nadia tries to reconnect with her twin sister, Aïcha, who lives in Tangiers. Aïcha has distanced herself and refuses to see Nadia. Sami attempts to reconcile his relationship with Bilal with his love for Nadia. Antoine tries to win over Cécile and reignite the passion she once felt for him. While at first she thought he was crazy and immature, Cécile feels restless and begins to question her life. When a terrible accident sends Antoine into a coma, Cécile stays at his bedside in Tangiers while Natan moves to Casablanca.
