Movie Info

Pauline a la Plage is the third of French filmmaker Eric Rohmer's "Comedies et Proverbes." Pauline (Amanda Langlet) is the teen-aged cousin of the seemingly more worldly and sensible Marion (Arielle Dombasle). Both girls become entwined in amorous escapades while vacationing at the beach. It gradually develops that Marion is the one least capable of handling herself, while Pauline grows in maturity from her summertime experiences. It is nothing short of amazing how Eric Rohmer can take the most

I hope that Pauline at the Beach will win new admirers for Mr. Rohmer, one of the most original and elegant film makers at work today in any country.

The result is a film of devastating irony and deep compassion.

Another masterpiece from French director Eric Rohmes about the different sides of love.

The beauty in the film is in the natural way the slight story evolves...

One of those small, deliberately paced, but charming foreign films in which not much happens plot wise, but a lot happens to the characters emotionally.

Audience Reviews for Pauline At The Beach

Pauline At The Beach is a return to form for a great director who in my opinion was stuck in a rut for the 5 or so years prior. This ain't no Clare's Knee but it does possess the same innocence and actually makes sense as a 'Comedies et Proverbes'. Some of the characters are better developed than others and I don't think much can be learnt from this film but it is very watchable and very likable and turns the phrase (that I hate), 'Coming of age' on its head somewhat. Oh, and no, I didn't just like it because it's got plenty of nudity in it! ;o)
