Moments of raw intimacy like this make it particularly painful to watch as the film lurches/slouches to its inevitably tragic conclusion.

Leaping effortlessly, audaciously ahead in time, the fractured form embodies Garrel's themes: the speed of life passing, the inescapable burden of memory.

Like the ghostly music its title evokes, this film's meanings are both elusive and haunting.

Raw, rueful, and piercingly alert, a film of tremendous formal instinct and cogent human truth, J'entends is an oblique memoir of the filmmaker's relationship to Nico (Steege) -- and a testament to the elusive genius of a postwar French master.

Garrel's nakedly personal disappointment bleeds into an unsentimental elegy for an elegantly wasted generation. Instead of shallow self-pity, he gives us a melancholy deep enough to drown in.

Garrel buffs, of which there are many, won't want to miss this one. Other viewers should decide based on their tolerance for talky, contemplative but rewarding cinema.

A film that purposefully avoids plot and character conventions, that will transport some viewers into a reverie and drive others to boredom and befuddlement.
