  • This winter romance by Rohmer, then in his 70s, demonstrates that faith and art can work miracles.

  • Rohmer's style, over the years, has become so easy and natural that, at its best, his work never seems like fabricated drama... While this low-budget Tale of Winter may seem simple, it's a masterly simplicity.

    Dec 15, 2014 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • As usual, Rohmer works magic with his generally unfamiliar casts, drawing from them more they perhaps realize they're yielding.

  • Rohmer has become such a master of his chosen classic genre -- the crystalline philosophical tale of character and romantic choice -- that this is a nearly perfect work, in performance as well as execution.

  • With A Tale of Springtime and A Tale of Winter, Eric Rohmer has given us a pair of wonderful motion pictures... I wonder what Summer and Autumn will bring.

    Oct 30, 2006 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • It has, as ever, enormous compassion, wit and insight, and its ending is exquisitely affecting.
