Movie Info

French filmmaker Eric Rohmer begins his Tales of the Four Seasons series with A Tale of Springtime about the reactions of a woman -- who prefers to maintain order and sense in her life -- when she is confronted with a less-than-orderly situation. Parisian philosophy teacher Jeanne is temporarily without a place to stay as her cousin occupies her own home and she refuses to stay in her boyfriend's messy apartment while he is away. A young pianist, Natasha, offers the use of her house and she accepts. After the two become friends, it is apparent there is rivalry between Natasha and her father Igor's girlfriend Eve. As Natasha's father drifts away from Eve, Natasha, who normally insists on keeping a distance in these matters finds herself in more of a mess. Fortunately, after pausing to consider involving herself further, she gracefully removes herself from the problems within this family and moves out of Natasha's place. Tale of Springtime is a good example of how Rohmer tells a story of the inner machinations and thoughts of the characters in his films rather than of their actions, while keeping the keen interest of the audience. A Winter's Tale is the following installment.

Audience Reviews for A Tale of Springtime

  • Jun 07, 2009
    Il s'agit d'un mystérieux petit bijou de film. Il a pratiquement pas de complot. Il est sexy, est habilement tourné, et elle est aussi charmante que l'on peut.
