A film of deep honesty, formal rigour and self-criticism, J'entends plus la guitare provides a dyspeptic and haunting portrait of the itinerant existence of Gerard (Benoît Régent) and Marianne (Johanna ter Steege), whose lives are fuelled by the trials and tribulations of love, betrayal and addiction. This evocative exploration of memory, time and the spaces between things is widely regarded as one of Garrel’s masterpieces.

I Can No Longer Hear the Guitar (J'entends plus la guitare)
Intensely intimate, melancholy and raw, director Philippe Garrel’s remarkable roman à clef provides an off-centre and poetically oblique account of his fraught relationship with Warhol Superstar Nico in the late 1960s and ’70s.
