The romantic comedy drama A Faithful Man, the 2019 sophomore feature from actor/director Louis Garrel (Making Plans for Lena) co-stars Laetitia Casta  (Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life), Lily-Rose Depp (daughter of you-know-who) and Josef Engel.

Nine years after she left him for his best friend, journalist Abel (Garrel) gets back together with his recently widowed old flame Marianne (Casta). It seems to be a beautiful new beginning, but soon the hapless Abel finds himself embroiled in all sorts of drama: the come-ons of a wily jeune femme (Depp), the machinations of Marianne’s morbid young son (Joseph Engel), and some unsavory questions about what exactly happened to his girlfriend’s first husband.

Co-written with the Jean-Claude Carrière, A Faithful Man is at once a beguiling bedroom farce and a playful inversion of the patriarchal tropes of the French New Wave.
