A FAITHFUL MAN (FRANCE – L’HOMME FIDÈLE), THU 13 FEBRUARY, 8PM

By March 7, 2019 Homepage, Season 22 films

Marianne, Abel’s girlfriend of three years, tells him that she is pregnant. Unfortunately for Abel, the father is his best friend, whom Marianne is now going to marry. A delightfully playful and truly French romantic comedy.

Shifting points of view as nimbly as its players switch partners, the sophomore feature from actor/director Louis Garrel—co-written with the legendary Jean-Claude Carrière—is at once a beguiling bedroom farce and a playful inversion of the patriarchal tropes of the French New Wave.

Slyly shifts from fake murder mystery to romantic comedy to family melodrama…stylish shenanigans and a highly entertaining love triangle.Irish Times ★★★
