Sinopsis

After a bad breakup, the only place 23-year-old Jeanne has to stay in Paris is the flat of her father. But when Jeanne arrives, she finds that his new girlfriend has moved in too: Arianne, a young woman her own age. Each is looking for their own kind of love in a city filled with possibilities.

Părerea noastră

A lithe romantic triangle, Philippe Garrel only needs the barest means—plus 35mm black & white film—to tell a lovely story of two young women (one played by his daughter) trying to find what love means to them.

Lover for a Day Regizat de 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.
