Jealousy La jalousie

Philippe Garrel / France / 2013 / 77 min / French

A new intimistic bravado by one of the last proponents of the French Nouvelle Vague. An accomplished work of art whose minimalistic structure associates it with the eloquent expressiveness of the silent movies, Jealousy resumes the director’s favourite issues of loss, mourning and love as a fountain of youth.

30-year-old Louis decides to leave Mathilde, the mother of his child, for Claudia, the woman he is madly in love with. Louis and Claudia are theatre actors. While Louis gets one offer of work after another, Claudia who was once a rising star is not cast in a single role. The insecure and miserable Claudia does love Louis, but is gripped by fear of losing him. One night she meets an architect who offers to help her. Louis loves Claudia immensely, but it is he now that feels paralysing fear of losing her. Charlotte, Louis’ young daughter, is a silent witness to this chaotic situation.

»The idea that underpins this film is that my son Louis plays his grandfather at 30 – the same age as Louis today – even though it is set in the present day. It tells of my father's love affair with a woman – and by admiring her I unwittingly made my exemplary mother jealous. And I was a child being raised by my mother (in the film, I am the little girl).« (Philippe Garrel)
