In the Shadow of Women

France 2015 | 73 minutes | French | English, Hebrew subtitles

Pierre and Manon live in Paris, making low-budget documentaries and living off odd jobs. When Pierre meets Elisabeth, a love affair commences. But Pierre has no intention of leaving his wife – he wants them both. When Elisabeth learns that Pierre's wife is having her own affair, she decides to tell him. Philippe Garrel, a key figure in French cinema of the last fifty years, has made over 30 films. His new film, a witty investigation into the birth and demise of relationships and the mysterious ways of passion, is proof that the Nouvelle Vague is still alive and kicking.
