La naissance de l'amour

Philippe Garrel France, 1993

Francisco R.'s rating of the film The Birth of Love

It reminded me of Bela Tarr's early films, especially his debut Family Nest and Autumn Almanac in the sense that the characaters spend most of their screen time sharing confidences with either lovers or friends, their faces being framed in tight, artful closeups on a very suggestive black and white palette. I am left with Garrel's highly sensitive vision and untidy storytelling as to evoke life at its bare essentials
