Whether adventure, comedy, action or fantasy, the films of the 80s (late 70s and early 90s included) are simply magical. It doesn’t matter if some have aged better than others, films like The Goonies, Indiana Jones, Ghostbusters, Rocky, etc. were created not only for financial gain, but also with tremendous passion, conveying a mystique that is difficult to describe, and which only those who lived through that period can fully appreciate.
When We Were Young does not include all of them (that would be impossible), but it does offer a carefully chosen and representative selection. And if you were terrified by the Gremlins, if you learned from Mr. Miyagi, if you cried when little Elliot said goodbye to E.T. or when Thelma & Louise started flying in their convertible, we invite you to embark on this nostalgic tour of superb illustrations and alternative posters by world-class artists, accompanied by curiosities and legendary quotes from the best movies of a wonderful era.
