Éric Rohmer directs Emmanuelle Chaulet, Francois-Eric Gendron and Sophie Renoir in this French romantic comedy where two new friends wobble over which handsome man is right for them.
I overdosed a little on Rohmer over lockdown… can’t say though I ever really settled into his painstakingly sloooow rhythm or fully appreciated his low key humanistic sex farces. I know people love his films but with one or two exceptions I’m just not getting it? This was, however, one of those exceptions. A perfectly pleasant gentle, wordy rom-com. Very middle class. Very “new town”. Very C&A. I especially appreciate his commitment to getting beautiful young French ingenues into swimsuits in the shortest amount of runtime possible.
