Synopsis

Etter et samlivsbrudd er farens leilighet den eneste plassen 23-år gamle Jeanne kan være, men Jeanne finner ut at farens nye kjæreste har også flyttet inn: Arianne, en ung kvinne på Jeannes alder. Begge leter etter kjærlighet i en by full av muligheter.

Vår mening

En kjærlighetstrekant, Philippe Garrel trenger bare det aller mest nødvendige— plus 35mm svart/hvitt film—for å fortelle historien om to unge kvinner (den ene spilt av datteren hans) som prøver å finne ut hva kjærlighet betyr for dem.

Lover for a Day Regissert av Philippe Garrel
There’s a casual mastery to latter-day Garrel that reveals a filmmaker who knows his craft inside and out and knows how to achieve the maximum effect with the simplest means. Even a shot of three characters sitting around a kitchen table (of which there are quite a few here) becomes a rich study in human interaction under Garrel’s gaze; and as for the closeups, they are, as usual, painterly, probing, and mesmerizing.

Running just over an hour, Lover for a Day is a work of radical compression. It’s the kind of film that could easily be written off as a minor work if it wasn’t so clear that this austerity is the product of a seasoned master in total control of his form.

At first sight, Lover for a Day might seem like a collection of moments, emphasized by a superbly economic editing that lets go of transitions. This simplicity is deceptive. Philippe Garrel creates not really a narrative arc, but a narrative braid: Jeanne can only find personal redemption through Ariane’s journey. It is a story of sacrifice, and in stories of sacrifice the casual moments tend to guard minor revelations.
