Critic Reviews for A Faithful Man (L'homme fidèle)

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

Besides a few funny jokes, A Faithful Man is a non-entity with little formal interest whatsoever.

A Faithful Man shows that Garrel has promise as a filmmaker, with a knack for directing actors and a welcome sense of Gallic wit.

September 10, 2018 | Full Review…

What sounds more like a French film festival outing than a romantic comedy centered around infidelity?

October 10, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

It reveals itself as neither committed New Wave subversion nor skillful homage, but rather a weak and uninspired imitation.

October 8, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Garrel does a fine job of mixing comedy, drama and thriller elements, but ultimately, the film feels too slight.

September 27, 2018 | Full Review…

[The film] reveals itself as the unequivocal debtor of a long tradition of French cinema with strong literary roots... but it does not go much further either in its pretensions. [Full review in Spanish]
