DIRECTOR: Philippe Garrel - FRANCE

Philippe Garrel’s romantic drama is an examination of marital infidelity and a freewheeling riff on life, art, and the never ending battle of the sexes. Married couple Pierre and Manon (Stanislas Merhar and Clotilde Courau) collaborate on making documentaries. While researching a current subject—an aging Resistance fighter—at a film archive, Pierre falls hard for Elisabeth (Lena Paugam), a beautiful young intern. When Manon discovers the affair, her reaction surprises both Pierre and herself. Garrel deftly manages to depict the characters’ different perspectives in a realistic and sometimes comical way, providing a fresh take on an old story: the mindset of unfaithful husbands, possessiveness, ego, and all the sexual politics related to their actions. (73 mins.)
