We gave it a B-

French director Philippe Garrel cast his tousle-haired son Louis (Saint Laurent) as a struggling actor who leaves his young family for a beautiful depressive (Anna Mouglalis) whose primary life skills seem to be smoking and looking insouciant in a trench coat. Despite some lovely naturalistic acting, the movie feels as monochromatic as its black-and-white film stock. Maybe La Jalousie is too subtle and profound for crass American tastes. Or maybe it’s just not that bon. (Also on Amazon Instant Video, iTunes, and VOD) B-
