dir. Louis Garrel, France, 2018, 75 min., French with English subtitles

Nine years after she left him for his best friend, journalist Abel (Louis Garrel) gets back together with his recently widowed old flame Marianne (Laetitia Casta). It seems to be a beautiful new beginning, but soon the hapless Abel finds himself embroiled in all sorts of drama, including the come-ons of a wily jeune femme (Lily-Rose Depp). This sophomore feature from actor/director Louis Garrel is at once a beguiling bedroom farce and a slippery inquiry into truth, subjectivity, and the elusive nature of romantic attraction.
