Description

LOVER FOR A DAY | Dir. Philippe Garrel | 2017 | 76 min
Presented in French with English subtitles.

Lover for a Day is an exquisite meditation on love and fidelity that recalls Garrel’s previous films selections Jealousy and In the Shadow of Women. After a painful breakup, heartbroken Jeanne (Esther Garrel) moves back in with her university professor father, Gilles (Eric Caravaca), to discover that he lives with optimistic, life-loving student Ariane (newcomer Louise Chevillotte), who is the same age as Jeanne. An unusual triangular relationship emerges as both girls seek the favor of Gilles, as daughter or lover, while developing their own friendship, finding common ground despite their differences. Gorgeously shot in grainy black and white by Renato Berta (Au revoir les enfants), Lover for a Day perfectly illustrates Garrel’s poetic exploration of relationships and desire. - Acephale
