Lover for a Day

L'amant d'un jour

Directed by Philippe Garrel
France, 2017
  • French
  • English


After a bad breakup, the only place 23-year-old Jeanne has to stay in Paris is the flat of her father. But when Jeanne arrives, she finds that his new girlfriend has moved in too: Arianne, a young woman her own age. Each is looking for their own kind of love in a city filled with possibilities.

Our take

A lithe romantic triangle, Philippe Garrel only needs the barest means—plus 35mm black & white film—to tell a lovely story of two young women (one played by his daughter) trying to find what love means to them.
