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.
