La Jalousie

Philippe Garrel
FRA 2013
77 min

Louis lives with a woman in a small, furnished, rented apartment. it’s a love story. He has a daughter by a woman he walked out on. He sees the child of course, but the woman lives alone with her and has to work to feed her because louis gives her nothing. He is very poor and he is an actor. A theater actor. And now he is madly in love with this other woman, who is also an actress. “The idea that underpins this film is that my son louis plays his grandfather at 30 – the same age as louis today – even though it is set in the present day. it tells of my father’s love affair with a woman – and by admiring her i unwittingly made my exemplary mother jealous. And i was a child being raised by my mother (in the film, i am the little girl). Those are the historical origins of this contemporary film – my son playing my father when he was thirty.” (Philippe Garrel)
