L'amant d'un jour

Philippe Garrel France, 2017

Federico D'Accinni's rating of the film Lover for a Day

The struggles and turbulences of a modern day relationship as seen through the 35mm lens of a New Wave auteur. Infidelity, jealousy, unspoken truths - themes so strongly vivid within all of Garrel's world - are reworked towards a more articulated and engaged reflection on what human feelings truly entail. DoP Berta's black & white photography, crisp and atmospheric at the same time, acts like an added character.
