2005. France. Written and directed by Philippe Garrel. With Louis Garrel, Clotilde Hesme. Garrel astonishingly recaptures the radical spirit of Paris in May 1968—the brash hope of rebellious youth during the long Night of the Barricades, and the opium-addled hangover of disillusionment that followed. Veteran cinematographer William Lubtchansky provides shimmering, haunting black-and-white imagery; Nico, Philippe Garrel's girlfriend during the mid-1970s, a memorable song; and Garrel's son, Louis, a brooding romanticism. In French; English subtitles. 178 min.
