The end of Emergency Kisses is probably my favourite of any Garrel picture, a scene that perfectly realizes his vision. . . . In one simple scene, absent any dialogue, Garrel visually conveys the vicissitudes of love and infidelity and the self-consciousness of role-playing that run through all his work. It’s a profoundly moving ending, and one that could only be realized by a master of the craft.
