The Museum of Fine Arts announces seven screenings of the latest film by iconic French director Philippe Garrel. In the Shadow of Women is shot in lustrous black and white, invoking the aesthetic of Jean-Luc Godard as it takes us to a Paris of side streets, bars, and tiny apartments.

The film follows a youngish couple: Pierre (Stanislas Merhar), a documentary filmmaker, and Manon (Clotilde Courau), his loyal professional and domestic partner, happy to make films with the man she loves. Pierre meets a young intern at the film archive where he does his research. It’s not long before he and Elisabeth (Lena Paugam) are entangled, and for Pierre, this amorous relationship becomes as much of a constraint as the one from which he is attempting to escape.

Philippe Garrel has been a prominent filmmaker in France since 1964, when he made his first film, Les Enfants Désaccordés, at the age of 16. Many of Garrel’s films from the 1970’s feature his then-girlfriend, the German singer Nico. He also collaborated with Jean Seaberg, Monica Bellucci and Catherine Deneuve. In his more recent films, he frequently directs his son, the actor Louis Garrel.
