L'amant d'un jour

Philippe Garrel France, 2017

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.
