Part of the The Underdog of the French New Wave: Eric Rohmer Film Season Season
Winner of the Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival, the film centres on 5 characters who meet, eat, drink, dance, talk, make love, swim, windsurf and argue about love. Rohmer’s films combine images, language, action and cinematic narrative fluidity to create a kind of cinema that no one else has ever done before.
