Another candid and unsparing contemplation of human frailty and weakness by Phillipe Garrel. Without some of the melodramatic flourishes of Jealousy and Lover for a Day, I enjoyed this film more. The wide screen black and white cinematography is ravishing, and the austere, limited score by Aubert plucks the emotions. Rendered more from the female perspective, as the title implies, it nevertheless finds empathy for the obviously flawed male lead. All in all, a must see for any fan of PG's brand of raw and honest probing of the human condition, French style.
