The result plays like a short story - deftly detailed, efficient, full of telling vignettes, perfectly formed.

This is a very French movie... It's a fun movie.

August 23, 2019 | Full Review…

This pair of female adventurers aren't even really characters, so much as fantasies. It's a shame because Garrel directs with frothy light-touch flair.

Top Critic

A tart, seriocomic morsel of desire and doubt, Louis Garrel's "A Faithful Man" is the French actor-filmmaker's second examination of triangulated romance after his debut feature as a director, "Two Friends."

August 1, 2019 | Full Review…

An efficient short story of a film that feels more like an intellectual exercise than an emotional experience.

July 20, 2019 | Full Review…

Garrel shows genuine springy inventiveness as a director, particularly with respect to Eve's sometimes self-correcting flashbacks.
