Editorial Reviews

Product Description

For the first time in the U.S., Zeitgeist Films and Film Desk proudly present two of the most important works by criminally underseen French auteur Philippe Garrel (Regular Lovers). Both crafted in a poetic, meditative style, these films perfectly demonstrate the eloquent emotional agility of one of France's most essential post-New Wave directors.

I Can No Longer Hear the Guitar (J'entends plus la guitare, 1991) is Garrel's haunting tribute to his ten-year relationship with the iconic German chanteuse Nico. Johanna ter Steege (The Vanishing) plays the passionate, doomed lover of Benoit Regent (Three Colors: Blue). Caught in a self-destructive heroin haze, they drift together and apart as Regent struggles with his simultaneous desire for and repulsion towards a stable life.

In the tender and heartbreaking Emergency Kisses (Les Baisers de secours, 1989), the entire Garrel clan steps in front of the camera as versions of themselves--Philippe, father Maurice, then-wife Brigitte Sy, and five-year-old Louis (Regular Lovers, The Dreamers) in his first screen role. When a philandering film director refuses to cast his stage actress wife in a role largely based on her, the couple begins to wrestle with their conflicting philosophies on art and life.
