Movie Info

Philippe Garrel is one of the major French filmmakers of the post-New Wave who has slowly begun to gain recognition in America after a career spanning 50 years with the release of his most recent films REGULAR LOVERS, FRONTIER OF DAWN and A BURNING HOT SUMMER as well as the re-release of I CAN STILL HEAR THE GUITAR PLAYING. Shot in lustrous, widescreen black and white by the great Willy Kurant (MASCULIN FEMININ, UNDER THE SUN OF SATAN), JEALOUSY may be Philippe Garrel's most accessible film in nearly 50 years of filmmaking. The film opens with a man leaving his wife and daughter and, in a series of brief conversations, observed gestures, chance encounters and impulsive acts, tells the story of the relationships that flounder and thrive in the wake of this decision. Louis Garrel, the director's son and frequent star, plays the husband who moves into a garret apartment with his fellow actor girlfriend (Anne Mouglalis) as they struggle with fidelity and the temptation to give up their art for an easier life. Shot with Garrel's celebrated sensitivity and attention to faces, bodies, hands and the intricacies of the human heart, JEALOUSY is an especially intimate, deeply poignant and never less than enthralling tale of love, temptation and betrayal.

Critic Reviews for Jealousy

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (10)

While certainly no love story, this dry-eyed tale feels achingly, maybe even exhilaratingly alive.

Conventional dramatic hooks have no place in Garrel's filmography, so it's not surprising that his new movie is more atmospheric than involving, or that the two beautiful bed heads at its center hardly invite emotional connection.

There's a casualness at work here that's absorbing because Garrel doesn't make a moment mean more than it ought to.

"Jealousy" is the kind of slight, academic, self-satisfied exercise that preaches only to the converted.

Top Critic

In a brief 77 minutes, "Jealousy" provides a remarkably full - and also an intriguingly partial - portrait of a group of struggling artists as no-longer-entirely-young men and women.

Quiet moments after big decisions are where the power lies in this absorbing French drama.

Audience Reviews for Jealousy

I wanted to take every character in this dull movie, shake them, slap them, then wash their hair because they all look dirty. Boring as heck, I give it one star for not going 90 minutes.

I've been so crazy for Louis Garrel over these years. Louis' collaboration with Philippe Garrel (his father) didn't impress me much however, even though it must have been very significant for both of them in so many ways. Unlike Philippe Garrel's self-indulgent, La Nouvelle Vague style in his last few pieces, LA JALOUSIE is approachable & way much easier to watch, although there are still those talky-flaws (to me) everywhere. Its briefness (72 minutes only) perhaps is one big advantage after all.
