Good news, everyone: Philippe Garrel has made another film! The French New Wave veteran isn’t as well-known among the public as a Godard or a Truffaut (he’s a fair bit younger — he was just 16 when he made his first short film, “Les enfants désaccordés,” in 1964), but among a certain kind of cinephile, he’s a hallowed name, either for his experimental early work (which included his collaborations with then-lover Nico in the 1970s), or for his more recent meditations on love, family and politics, often in collaboration with his son, actor Louis Garrel.

We’ve always struggled a bit with his work, to be totally honest, but we’re always willing to be won round, and maybe it’ll come with his latest, “Lover For A Day,” which will see the 69-year-old French director return once again to the Directors’ Fortnight sidebar at Cannes, and the first English-subtitled trailer for the film has debuted over at Screen Daily. This time, it sees him working with his daughter, Edith Garrel, who plays a young woman who returns home after a break-up to discover that her father (Éric Caravaca) is having an affair with a woman her own age (Louise Chevillotte).

Holders of a Philippe Garrel bingo card will find it filling up quite quickly — black and white, nudity from a much younger woman, affairs, smoking cigarettes, the words ‘philosophy class’ — but the devil’s in the details with the director, and we hope that this’ll be the one to make us see the light. It’ll be screening at Directors’ Fortnight in just a few weeks: check back then for our verdict, and watch the trailer below (it’s NSFW for the nudity, just so you know…)
