The Time of Their Lives : Synopsis | Vertigo Films

THE TIME OF THEIR LIVES invites you on a road trip like no other.

Determined to gate-crash her ex-lover’s funeral on glamorous French hideaway Île de Ré, former Hollywood siren HELEN (Joan Collins) escapes her London retirement home with the help of repressed English housewife PRISCILLA (Pauline Collins).

Pooling their limited resources, they hit the road together by coach, ferry, car, and foot in a race to get to the funeral on time, becoming embroiled in a romantic triangle with an Italian painter (Franco Nero) along the way. On this unforgettable journey, they find true friendship in one another – and have the time of their lives.
