L'amant d'un jour

Philippe Garrel Perancis, 2017

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.
