A Faithful Man

Louis Garrel directs and stars in this light-hearted drama about the unanticipated joys and heartbreaks one man experiences. There is a gentle, French New Wave tone and feel, as if we are encountering Truffaut’s Antoine Doinel once again. The contemporary Paris setting and its streets, cafés, and apartments appear almost unchanged since the ’60s. But it is the youthful director’s unique, carefully modulated, quizzically engaged touch that charms and engages.
