ANGELIKA’S NOTE

Veteran filmmaker Philippe Garrel once again fashions a pinpoint-precise and economical study of young love and its prevarications, which ever so gradually blossoms into an emotionally resonant moral tale. Constructed and composed with crystalline austerity, and co-written with Jean-Claude Carrière and Arlette Langmann Berlin and San Sebastian International Film Festival Official Selection THE SALT OF TEARS is a pocket portrait that demonstrates the persistent vitality of one of French cinema’s great observers of the callowness of youth. “One of the most finely tuned and richly achieved of Garrel’s recent works. Beautiful." (Screen Daily)
