Movie Info

La Boulangere De Monceau (The Girl at the Monceau Bakery is the first of six short films that make up the Six Moral Tales series by French New Wave director Eric Rohmer. This 25-minute segment was shot in Paris with 16 mm black-and-white film. Barbet Schroeder (who also produced) plays a young university student who is initially attracted to a girl he sees on the street. While searching for her over several days, he makes frequent stops to a bakery. When he finally finds the girl and arranges a date, it conflicts with the date he has made with the bakery salesgirl. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi

All Critics (1) | Top Critics (1)

Contrasting the action with the young man's self-justifying narration, Rohmer binds the universal drama of love and lust to the specifics of one little corner of Paris.

Audience Reviews for La Boulangère de Monceau (The Baker of Monceau)(The Girl at the Monceau Bakery)

This disc is likely to be enjoyed by lovers of French cinema but others will likely find it too short and the production values a bit low. For myself, I found the two shorts amusing and somewhat charming while they lasted, with the dialogue compensating for lack of production (particularly the sound). The interview is long and not engaging, so I do not rate that. All-in-all, I find the quality of the material to be fine but there not to be enough of it to be worth a queue slot.

The first of the six moral tales by Eric Rohmer, about a young man who becomes inviolved with two women and eventually must choose between them. A Nouvelle Vague, with a short, simple story, but well worth twenty minutes of your time.
