REGULAR LOVERS

Director: Philippe Garrel

183 minutes| France| 2005| Subtitled| Black and White| 35mm


Tousle-haired Louis Garrel returns to the Left Bank streets of Paris ’68 in this leisurely rumination on revolution and its aftermath directed by his father, Philippe Garrel. A veteran independent on the French scene, Garrel pere brings firsthand knowledge of the events in question to bear on this atmospheric portrait of a generation, while Garrel junior gives a charismatic performance as a young poet tussling with authority as the heady days of May explode around him. His idealism evaporates when he falls for the alluring Lilie. Before long, aspirations to changing the world expire in a haze of sex and opium.
