Lover For A Day (15)


A young woman returns home after the breakdown of a relationship to discover her father is dating a woman her age.

The critical consensus

It is a wisp of a film, but made with such elegance and sincerity that it does beguile.

****(*)Allan Hunter, The List, 15/01/2018

Beneath Garrel’s unassuming, subdued style lies a deceptively powerful study of fidelity, lensed in stark, moody monochrome and featuring a compelling screen debut from Louise Chevillotte.

****(*)Simon Crook, Empire Online, 16/01/2018

Director Garrel probes away at such subjects as romantic longing and sexual jealousy in a playful way.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 17/01/2018

Packs a whole lot of nuance and romantic consideration into its bracingly curt run time.

****(*)Ian Barr, Little White Lies, 19/01/2018

An emotionally distraught woman moves in with her father and his new live-in girlfriend in a subtle drama oozing with sex, jealousy and romance.

***(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 19/01/2018

Shot in lustrous black and white, Lover For A Day is an elegant reflection on the meaning of fidelity, revealing the characters in what could be their true colours.
