Life, love and relationships are familiar subjects for filmmakers, so much so that it’s often hard to find an original take or a distinct voice taking on such subject matter. But post-New Wave director Philippe Garrel is likely to succeed on each score with his latest “Jealousy.”
Starring the director’s son Louis Garrel and Anna Mouglalis (“Gainsbourg,” “Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky“), the story follows a man who leaves his wife and daughter and takes up with his girlfriend, chronicling the repercussions of that decision, and the future that lies ahead. The film is at once contemplative and lighthearted, with this exclusive scene highlighting the latter, as the protagonist playfully despairs over the the “methods of corruption” he faces when a lollipop is stolen.
“Jealousy” opens on opens on August 15th at the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center, and on Friday, August 22nd at the Laemmle Royal Theater. It will be available on iTunes Tuesday, August 19th and on Amazon Instant, Vudu and Google Play on Tuesday, August 26th. Watch below.
