showtimes and tickets

"Arguably Philippe Garrel's masterpiece, I DON'T HEAR THE GUITAR ANYMORE is a surpassingly delicate meditation on love, loss and the passage of time. As always, Garrel and his scenarist Marc Cholodenko are working in the realm of poetically refracted autobiography, one level away from psychodrama. The incandescent Johanna Ter Steege is the Nico figure and the late Benoit Régent is the Garrel stand-in, and their scenes together play like instants plucked from the past and preserved in crystalline form, under perfectly captured natural light (thanks to the great Caroline Champetier behind the camera). The guitar that is no longer heard, except in memory, belongs to the Velvet Underground, an echo of yesterday's dreams."
Kent Jones, Film Society of Lincoln Center

"Philippe Garrel is the proverbial underrated genius. He is the closest thing to a poet functioning today in French cinema. J'ENTENDS PLUS LA GUITARE is possibly his masterpiece. It is about his love affair with Nico, it’s about his heroin addiction, it’s also about surviving youth, surviving in an age where everything you stood for, believed in, dreamed of has been crushed."
– Olivier Assayas

Beautiful and tender. It will be too slow moving for some, but the soft melodies of this film are slowly revealed. Stick with it and its fragmented style and you will be truly rewarded.

I believe in film as a vehicle for poetry, and am deeply attracted to this film that I have not yet seen. Dreams and memories are the personal cinema of all humankind. Three cheers to Phillipe Garrel for sharing himself, and to the Film Desk for bringing this work to New York City!
