Mr. Rohmer's films look like no one else's. They are direct and clean, the movie equivalent to prose that dispenses with adjectives and adverbs.
We can recognized the rhythms of real life, in which personal drama sometimes has to wait while we attend to routine duties.
A Tale of Springtime presents a rare and wonderful opportunity to discover a trio of multidimensional cinematic characters. Once you've been introduced, you won't want to be parted from them, whether or not Springtime ends.
French film aficionados might find something satisfying about this little film, but apart from a unique Gallic perspective on the relationships that are presented in the film, there is little to hold the viewer's interest.
I am beginning to see how each of his films is a small piece of the one lifelong movie he's be cobbling all these years. And I am beginning to see how who I am at different points in my life affects my responses.
