  1. Superfrog's rating of the film Lover for a Day

    À film of scenes, with perfect photography and a sense of repetition in images. I am sure more possessive with their partner kinds would find it more emotional but I completely failed to empathise with either characters, except for the daughter. The father by not keeping to his word is amazingly self destructive in his insecurity...

  2. Pedja's rating of the film Lover for a Day

  3. Mattia Ricotta's rating of the film Lover for a Day

  4. Angus George Alexander Brown's rating of the film Lover for a Day

    It's matt and moody, moist and marvellous. A gorgeous piece of cinema.

  5. Miller's Crossing's rating of the film Lover for a Day

    A simple universal story where every characters wear his/her heart on their sleeve. This movie wouldn't be so great if the actors were not exceptional and they all are.

  6. Jim Brown's rating of the film Lover for a Day

    Premtentious and charming at the same time. I thought the Father/Lecturer was played brilliantly, understated. On the whole and enjoyable film.

  7. Jeremy's rating of the film Lover for a Day

    Someone else described it as Rohmer with sex, and that's not far off the mark. Lots of philosophising by an excellent cast. It's refreshing to see that this type of film is still being made.

  8. M Madalena Alves's rating of the film Lover for a Day

  9. McOpinionated's rating of the film Lover for a Day

    Charming, and an unusual situation explored. Though the wider social meaning of the father-student relationship is ignored completely, neither age(gap) nor gender roles are irrelevant, and both are important themes. Some nice dialogue and pleasing close-ups of a gorgeous young freckly face.

  10. Draughtsman Without Contract's rating of the film Lover for a Day

    Could have been made at any time since 1960. But only in France.

  11. Blue Roses's rating of the film Lover for a Day

  12. Matt Richards's rating of the film Lover for a Day

    You have to hand it to Garrel for always being interested in exploring the stickier sides of relationships and with another script from Deruas you know you'll be looking at jealousy, adultery and the re-negotiation of relationships as truths surface. Good performances, minimal sound design and a nostalgia stirring black and white aesthetic all pull things together cohesively. 3 stars

  13. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Lover for a Day

    forse non 4.5, sicuramente è tra i lavori meno meritevoli di Garrel, ma stiamo comunque parlando di Garrel. Ogni suo film è da vedere, forse tra i film migliori del 2017.

  14. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film Lover for a Day

    I love that we’re living in the Golden Age of Esther Garrel.

  15. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Lover for a Day

    ***1/2. Black & White. Daughter must kill her stepmother in order to save her father. Greek tragedy, Freud and Jung. Eric Rohmer with sex. Strongly recommended.

  16. Isa Reis's rating of the film Lover for a Day

    2 ptos. para a "Luísa" Garrel

  17. grotesc's rating of the film Lover for a Day

  18. Juliana Senra's rating of the film Lover for a Day

    Hearing about how Arianne fell in love with Gilles was lovely.

  19. daxterpt999's rating of the film Lover for a Day

    Innovative in some (unpleasant) ways: incapable of filming the color black, the movie presents instead infinite variations on grey. The dialogues work - it's filled with all kinds of truths - so why does this all seem fake... academic?

  20. Miguel Duarte's rating of the film Lover for a Day

  21. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film Lover for a Day

  22. Victor Morosoff's rating of the film Lover for a Day

  23. José Neves's rating of the film Lover for a Day

    Digital. There is no turning back, Garrel don't leave the little stories of "horn pain", filming them directly without any special cinematic addition, except for Renato Berta's cinematography and the sound: here we can still hear some concrete sounds out-of-the-field, as steps on the stairs - but, hélàs, the use of music has already trivialized. Soporific, if we can resist to so many cries and howls.

  24. BernardoL's rating of the film Lover for a Day

    So bad. Pretentious to the core, poorly acted, uninspired camera work, cringe dialogue, devoided of any real significance or meaning. Also, very trite and typically french rhetoric about love, sex and fidelity.
