La naissance de l'amour

Philippe Garrel France, 1993

Slappy McGee's rating of the film The Birth of Love

The 1st truly mature movie that I've seen from Garrel. Such refreshing change from his usual experimentation films. Through relationships and emotions he's able to show us his characters' changes and discoveries. Maybe Garrel needed all of those experimental films to get him to this point, but regardless it is good to see some solid grounded work from this man who clearly has things to say about the human condition.
