L'amant d'un jour

Philippe Garrel Franța, 2017

OFF_FRAME's rating of the film Lover for a Day

You have to hand it to Garrel for always being interested in exploring the stickier sides of relationships and with another script from Deruas you know you'll be looking at jealousy, adultery and the re-negotiation of relationships as truths surface. Good performances, minimal sound design and a nostalgia stirring black and white aesthetic all pull things together cohesively. 3 stars
