La naissance de l'amour

Philippe Garrel France, 1993

DrFirestone's rating of the film The Birth of Love

This film is about loneliness in relationships and family, emptiness, changes, about love and finding our own purpose and destiny; filled with melancholy, and probably a few moments of nostalgia for the old revolutionary days. Strong acting, that magic connection between the characters is there, excellent Jean-Pierre Leaud. Beautiful b&w analogue cinematography and minimalist use of music. Excellent!
