What are critics saying?


Village Voice by Alan Scherstuhl

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.


The Hollywood Reporter by Boyd van Hoeij

Never a full-on character piece or even an exploration of the titular sentiment, Jealousy instead offers moments of quiet tragedy in some seemingly innocent throwaway moments


CineVue by John Bleasdale

The acting throughout is supremely naturalistic, and the social milieu of both family life and the theatre are carefully observed and lightly rendered.


Time Out by Keith Uhlich

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


Variety by Leslie Felperin

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


Slant Magazine by Nick McCarthy

Like an astutely aching ballad, the film—aptly scored with sweet, strumming beats by Jean-Louis Aubert—is pleased to ambiguously infer the interior logic of its irresolute characters without pigeonholing their motivations.
