This episodic French film is one of director Eric Rohmer's self-styled comedies et proverbes . Reinette (Joelle Miguel) is as innocent as a newborn babe. Mirabelle (Jessica Forde) is as worldly and sophisticated as Reinette is not.

Light as "Rendez-vous in Paris" but with a deeper (and always honest) eye on day-by-day life.
