These characters are fixed. They have no arc. And Garrel seems to prefer them learning no lessons from the experience.

Audience Reviews for Lover For A Day (L'amant d'un jour)

Even though it is interesting and even engaging, it feels almost impossible not to leave this film with the impression that a lot was told but little was actually said in the end, with everything being mostly inconsequential and not really probing anywhere beneath the surface.
