    Vital and vigorous even when its characters feel scraped of vigor/vitality, Philippe Garrel's latest finds boho Parisians facing the ends of marriages, affairs, and the feasibility of bohemian existence itself.

    In comparison with near-impenetrable Garrel efforts like "Regular Lovers" (2005) and "Frontier of the Dawn" (2008), Jealousy cuts straight to the heart.

    While it features characters making unrelatable decisions, this 77-minute film is nonetheless compelling and beautifully constructed.

    More tightly scripted than Garrel’s usual rambles, the comedy-drama also has an unexpected emotional warmth.

    It's certainly atmospheric and cool in a new-New Wave way, but really, what's the point?

    There isn’t much to it, really, but a little truth and loveliness is always welcome.

    Conventional dramatic hooks have no place in Garrel's filmography, so it's not surprising that his new movie is more atmospheric than involving, or that the two beautiful bed heads at its center hardly invite emotional connection.

    I am usually fond of French movies and have high expectations if critics reviews are favorable. One of few good things about this movie is that it is relatively short: 77 minutes.
    What else is good? The girl, Charlotte, is so sweet. Actors performance is decent. That's about it. The movie is pretentious, shot in black-and-white. The script does not make much sense, characters actions are not reasonable. Not much of a story, not much of a form. I did not feel any empathy towards any of the characters.
    Overall: do not waste your time and money.
