Lover for a Day

After a dramatic break-up, twenty-three-year-old Jeanne returns home to her father Gilles, only to find out he's living with a woman of her own age. The clash of contrasting female personalities triggers a mutual aversion at first, yet it soon transforms into a peculiar alliance which reshapes the whole unusual family triangle. Phillip Garrel, belonging to the second generation of the French New Wave, cast his daughter, Esther Garrel, in one of the leading roles.
