The final chapter addresses the most recent period in Garrel’s cinema, marked by his engagement with the experiences of younger generations. Since La Naissance de l’amour (1993) Garrel has produced eight films at the time of writing and is currently working on his ninth, Le Sel des larmes. This chapter identifies several distinct threads that together form loose subcategories within this body of work. The first concerns the memory and legacy of May 68, explored in the works Le Vent de la nuit (1999) and Les Amants réguliers (2005). The second concerns films that confront issues relating to young couples and the trauma of separation, including Sauvage Innocence (2001), La Frontière de l’aube (2008) and Un Été brûlant (2010). A third thread relates to the films La Jalousie (2013), L’Ombre des femmes (2015) and L’Amant d’un jour (2017). Filmed in black and white and each with a duration of approximately seventy-five minutes, the works have been described by Stephane Delorme as a ‘trilogie freudienne’. Consideration is given to the comparatively lighter tone that emerges in the latter films which hint at a cautious optimism on the part of Garrel.
