with a friend cancelled at the last minute. Delphine, who is getting over a long romance with Jean-Pierre, tries and tries (and her friends try and try...) to distract herself with solo trips out of the city--- but finds her loneliness follows her wherever she goes.
No, not much of a plot, and yet, in the Marie Riviere character, we find one of the most complete portrayals of a woman you will ever see made even more magnificent by the realization that almost all her dialogue was improvised, according to Eric Rohmer, the brilliant director. The film won the prestigious top prize at Venice (the Golden Bear).
Recently, more than a few critics have placed this film in their top 10 and I'd also give it a very high placement. Bonus: lots of beautiful areas of France are shown and there is little effort to avoid photographing the nudity on public Cote d'Azur beaches...

The story of a young girl's erotic journey from Milan to Minsk.
I just rewatched it for the third time recently. Wonderful film but, like most of his films, not for those with a short attention span.
If you haven't seen it, seek out A Tale of Winter. I was able to see it once but have had a difficult time finding it again.
Too many cool films to list of Rohmer's, but I have a special fondness for The Four Adventures of Rheinette and Mirabelle.
his films are about relationships, too, but with a very unusual, improvised character that are both similar and very different to Rohmer. "Hotel by the River" is one of his latest and I'd highly recommend it.
I enjoy his films as well! Have seen the two with Isabelle Huppert, Hotel by the River, and four more. I remember Claire's Camera and at least one other being surreal, unlike Rohmer's more straight forward style, but yes they would appeal to a very similar audience!
It's time for another dive into Tavernier, for me...
