A Faithful Man (2019) | Louis Garrel
A Faithful Man (L'homme fidèle)
(Louis Garrel, 2019, 75 min, France, French w/ English subtitles, Color, DCP)
Nine years after his wife left him for his best friend, journalist Abel (Louis Garrel) gets back together with his recently widowed old flame Marianne (Laetitia Casta), who, if her morbid young son is to be believed, has a thing for poisoning men. A wily jeune femme (Lily-Rose Depp) further complicates the drama of this beguiling bedroom farce and Nouvelle Vague sendup.
"A tart, seriocomic morsel of desire and doubt." - Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"A frothy film menage a trois that combines all of the best elements of vintage romances with a thoroughly modern take on gender roles." - Lee Jutton, Film Inquiry
