Could someone please tell me the French for 'turning the clock back', as in 'You can't turn the clock back', referring to not being able to go back to the old days.

Thank you!

It is just a guess but "se remettre au passé"  seems to exist as a phrase  which means something along the lines  of  what you said.

You also have "revenir en arriere" .  I see someone in this thread

http://forum.wordreference.com/showthread.php?t=622974

has translated it as "turn the clock back"

"revenir en arrière"=> vous ne pouvez pas revenir en arrière.

ou "remonter le temps" => vous ne pouvez pas remonter le temps.

Merci, George et Chantal!   Jackie
