The film is delightfully unpredictable, warm, nuanced. It's civilized entertainment.

Though you wouldn't know it from Hollywood's kids 'r us obsessions, directors actually can improve as they advance in age.

There's a form of poetic justice in all this, and it gives the film, otherwise straitlaced, its jagged wit: Women on the lookout for love may be fools, but they make sure to turn the men who romance them into even bigger ones.

The he-said, she-said shenanigans suggest that high school may be eternal but autumn has its wisdom. In the last scene, the 78-year-old filmmaker brings his favorite conspirator back for a last dance -- it's a vintage performance that invites applause.

It's a solidly entertaining effort -- the kind of movie that can be enjoyed by anyone who appreciates discerning comedy.

The latest in a long, rich series of films by the perceptive French director, who tells stories about people we'd like to know, or be.

If a part of me has resisted and sometimes even resented his mastery, this undoubtedly can be traced to a problem with realism that his work as a whole throws into relief. To put it crudely, why reproduce the real world when we have the thing itself?

Eric Rohmer is the KFC of international cinema. The 79-year- old director has been doing just one thing for decades, but he does it right.

As sublimely warming an experience as the autumn sun that shines benevolently on the vineyard owned by the film's central character, Magali.
