Richard Brody New Yorker Leaping effortlessly, audaciously ahead in time, the fractured form embodies Garrel's themes: the speed of life passing, the inescapable burden of memory. Nov 4, 2013 Full Review David Fear Time Out Rated: 4/5 Nov 17, 2011 Full Review Nathan Lee Village Voice Raw, rueful, and piercingly alert, a film of tremendous formal instinct and cogent human truth, J'entends is an oblique memoir of the filmmaker's relationship to Nico (Steege) -- and a testament to the elusive genius of a postwar French master. Apr 4, 2011 Full Review Christopher Long Movie Metropolis Moments of raw intimacy like this make it particularly painful to watch as the film lurches/slouches to its inevitably tragic conclusion. Rated: 9/10 Jul 8, 2009 Full Review Chris Cabin a dark and devastating romance Rated: 4/5 May 30, 2009 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member lame boring and pretencious with characters that i could care less about. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review walter m "I Can No Longer Hear the Guitar" is a dreary movie about the on-again, off-again relationship between Gerard(Benoit Regent) and Marianne(Johanna ter Steege) that is off when she becomes jealous over Lola(Mireille Perrier), the girlfriend of his friend Martin(Yann Collette). The movie succeeds very well at making the viewer as miserable as the characters while making it impossible to get any grasp on who they really are without any context. The jump cutting certainly does not help. Details about Marianne come and go. For example, it is established at one point that she is a single mother and then it is never brought up again. Later, heroin is entered into the volatile mix with a more lasting effect. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member This film is dedicated to Nico,the singer of Velvet Underground...for me is one of the most important movie of last forty years..i should like that all flixster's people can watch this movie...dedicato a tutti coloro che amano l'amore. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Masterpiece. Confessional drama inspired in the enduring relationship of Philippe Garrel (the director) and Nico (Andy Wharhol's muse) and its bitter end, this film is little know but much enjoyable. Raw and quietly, it presents the dependence and the harm the relationship caused in each protagonist. So far, the best movie that I've seen this year. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member This film defines the idea of personal film-making. It follows the haunting influence that singer/ model Nico had on the director both in the on and off nature of their relationship and his own dependency on heroin. Each scene moves us through months and years of the directors various relationships that are all touched in some way by his deep live of Nice-whose death inspired him to make the film. Superb. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Pour moi le meilleur et plus touchant de Philippe Garrel. On croit au début regarder un mauvais Rohmer (pléonasme), puis le film étale avec pudeur et dureté le deuil, le sentiment de perte, la déchéance, les amours ratés, le tout très garrelien, mais le tout sur la regrettée Kristina Pfäffen, dite Nico. Snif. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Read all reviews
