How is it that a man who's spent all his life as a fashionable dandy, a social snob, suddenly withdraws, shuts himself up in a cork-lined room and writes? Fifteen years, and a long, long novel and from it a reputation as the greatest French writer of this century. For many Proust remains a mystery: some get no further than the first few pages of his Remembrance of Things Past (A la Recherche du Temps Perdu).
And yet his immense book opens up a world of fantastic characters, humour and tragedy, and one of the best descriptions of childhood ever written.
It's the story of a search - involving Time, how it changes people and places, disintegrates, is lost - with clues laid all the way, as Angus Wilson puts it, 'like a detective story.'
This film, made for the centenary of Proust's birth, follows that novel - and the life that made it - in search of lost time.
