In the Shadow of Women

“The currents of desire, jealousy and resentment that flow through a relationship over time receive an exquisite close-up” – Variety

Dir. Philippe Garrel, France, 2015. 73 min | Drama, Romance

Pierre and Manon make low-budget documentaries and live off odd jobs. When Pierre meets a young trainee, Elisabeth, she becomes his mistress. But Pierre doesn’t want to leave Manon – he wants to keep both women. Elisabeth discovers that Manon has a lover, and tells Pierre. Pierre returns to Manon, the woman he truly loves. Feeling betrayed, he begs her, neglecting Elisabeth… After Jealousy, Philippe Garrel delivers a new variation on the theme of romantic passion, the birth and death of relationships and the strange paths of desire.
