Deuxième vie (French for "Second Life") is a 2000 French comedy and fantasy film directed by Patrick Braoudé. It stars the same Braoudé and focuses on time travel. It is set during the period of the football World Cups of 1982 and 1998.
Vincent (Patrick Braoudé), 30 years old, is an immature man. When Laurie (Maria de Medeiros), the woman he loves, asks Vincent to create a family, he is unable to make a decision. He also feels difficult to decide upon resumption of the family business, the association with Forsan (Thierry Lhermitte), his childhood friend, or simply to purchase a single pair of shoes. The same evening he is the victim of a car accident that catapults him 16 years later, on July 12, 1998. It is the night of the French victory of the 1998 World Cup against Brazil: thousands of French are celebrating the victory in Paris at the Eiffel Tower and Vincent is mistaken for a Brazilian and after for a fool, asking why they were celebrating a defeat.
Vincent has also some difficulty mastering that Jacques Chirac is the French president and cybercafés are trendy. His father (Wojciech Pszoniak) sold the family store against a pizzeria and Ronny (Daniel Russo) became their driver. Vincent also has difficulty when he discovers himself married with Sonia (Isabelle Candelier), father and CEO capitalist, greedy and ignoble. His son Cédric (Jimmy Redler) feels a boundless hatred to him and Vincent remains troubled by the beauty of his daughter Marina (Anne Abel). Shocked to have realized that he had become everything he hated in 1982 and having lost all his friends and Laurie, Vincent will try everything to go back in time and change his life, to delete this disastrous future.
