Overview

Touted in many circles as a response to The Dreamers 2003 -- Bernardo Bertolucci's ode to Paris in May 1968 -- Philippe Garrel's Regular Lovers aka Les Amants Réguliers explores the same events cinematically but undertakes a wholly unique aesthetic and temporal approach. The director follows his central characters, a young man named François and his clique of friends, as they experience the aftermath of the events and grapple with their attempts to understand what has just occurred. Garrel's familiarity with The Dreamers came by default; his son, Louis, starred in that earlier work, and plays François in this film.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Nathan Southern
Many viewers who felt let down by The Dreamers' treatment of the events of '68 may feel vindicated by this work. Cinematographically, Philippe Garrel employs gritty, grainy black-and-white to impart a docudrama quality to the motion picture and thus, the suggestion of the political protests actually transpiring as the film unspools. Temporally, whereas Bertolucci's events unfold in the days prior to the riots and protests, Garrel goes for the jugular, with a plunge right into the core of the fray. Students of French film might notice similarities between this loquacious, cerebral three-hour work and the films of the late Jean Eustache, particularly his masterful 1973 film La Maman et la Putain The Mother and the Whore. The parallels are not accidental; Garrel was a protégé of Eustache and planned this work as an homage.
