Very elegantly crafted.
Still fascinating Garrel.
Garrel carefree films with continuity on the same subjects of always and with conflicts and similar personages.
The veteran French director Philippe Garrel is on a major roll at the moment.
Garrel offers a film that is like a Polaroid, joyfully impure and with fuzzy outlines.
Garrel has the touch of a wiser man not taking judgment on his characters' youthful foibles, where setbacks are to be embraced and learned from rather than experiences discarded from memory.
Garrel is the only director who continues filming in the style of that modern cinema of which he has always been an illustrious bulwark.
A lot happens in just 75 minutes of screen time, offering viewers emotional fallout that lingers much longer.
Philippe Garrel is a French director and actor. He received the Prix Jean-Vigo for THE SECRET CHILD in 1982. He was twice awarded at the Venice Film Festival by the Silver Lion for best director, in 1991 for I DON'T HEAR THE GUITAR ANYMORE and in 2005 for REGULAR LOVERS, for which he also received the Prix Louis-Delluc. His films often relate to the youth of the 60’s protest, to which he belonged.
His film LOVER FOR A DAY (2017) was selected at the Directors' Fortnight at the 70th Cannes Film Festival.
