Critic Reviews for Romance of Astrea and Celadon
In what he claims will be his final film, 87-year-old Eric Rohmer fashions a serenely daffy coda to a half a lifetime spent behind the camera exploring the vicissitudes of romance.
It's often as fresh and buoyant as [Rohmer's] modern takes on the battle of the sexes.
It is the wisdom, passion, joy and hope with which he invests the film that makes it so terribly moving.
The movie looks and feels exactly how it probably was to make: like a walk in the park.
The nymphs and druids who frolic through The Romance of Astrea and Celadon occupy mythological space between Shakespeare and Greek mythology.
I can't think of another director who would even have tried to make this mythic wonderland come alive, with its impossibly beautiful actors, lush, bucolic scenery and not even the slightest concession to contemporary notions of realism.
