Jeanne (Esther Garrel, director Philippe Garrel’s daughter), broken-heartedly flees her boyfriend’s apartment and beds down at her Dad’s place. The morning after, she discovers that her father Gilles (Éric Caravaca), has a live-in girlfriend, Ariane (Louise Chevillotte) – both these young women are 23 year-old students while Gilles is a 50 year-old philosophy professor.

Beautifully and broodingly filmed in black and white by Swiss cameraman Renato Berta, the film captivates us with director/screenwriter Garrel’s exploration of love in all its forms and betrayals – sexual passion, jealousy, and infidelity. It’s “raw cinema” in every sense of the phrase… – Cinemania
