Philippe Garrel: Fight for Eternity


The Birth of Love studies two friends who seem only vaguely aware that their time has past. What follows is a search to return to the purity of their cherished ideals—a desire to overcome the complacency of ageing and familiar comfort in order to recapture their passion.
