French New Wave veteran Philippe Garrel’s breathtaking black-and-white drama Lover for a Day is a bittersweet and intoxicating study of relationships in flux. Completing a trilogy of sorts alongside Jealousy and In The Shadow of Women, the narrative tells of a father whose 23-year-old daughter returns home heartbroken, and of the father’s new girlfriend who is also 23 and lives with him. The scene is set for a platonic ménage à trois as the characters dance around their foibles and dysfunctions.
