In some respects, the film resembles Éric Rohmer's moral tales, but amorality - all three principal characters are effectively dancing on a man's grave - seems to be the order of the day.

Running just 75 minutes and seemingly loath to move beyond superficial feints at both comedy and melodrama, A Faithful Man, by comparison, barely qualifies as a trifle.

Many plot twists and turns are packed into the rather rushed 75-minute running time here, and they are not always "elegant," to borrow a preferred term from the film, but they are certainly diverting.

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.

There's a tangible morbidity to this pendulum swinging romantic comedy which posits its women characters as the narrative's true power players.

So brief, dry and airless one hesitates to call it a "romantic comedy" or even a comedy.

The French romantic farce still lives strong!

Garrel's film is both funny and wise, upending our expectations from beginning to end.

A nimble romantic comedy with a puckish sense of humour regarding crushes, fantasies and romantic affairs.
