Critic Reviews for A Tale of Springtime
Mr. Rohmer's films look like no one else's. They are direct and clean, the movie equivalent to prose that dispenses with adjectives and adverbs.
A Tale of Springtime presents a rare and wonderful opportunity to discover a trio of multidimensional cinematic characters. Once you've been introduced, you won't want to be parted from them, whether or not Springtime ends.
We can recognized the rhythms of real life, in which personal drama sometimes has to wait while we attend to routine duties.
French film aficionados might find something satisfying about this little film, but apart from a unique Gallic perspective on the relationships that are presented in the film, there is little to hold the viewer's interest.
I am beginning to see how each of his films is a small piece of the one lifelong movie he's be cobbling all these years. And I am beginning to see how who I am at different points in my life affects my responses.
Audience Reviews for A Tale of Springtime
This is how gentle people behave. Natasha is young and hurt by her parents' divorce. She grows competitive with her father's new girlfriend, Eve, who is only a few years only than she. Eve gets competitive back. There is a small fight, when ends when everyone volunteers to leave, as gentle people should. Natasha's father tried to seduce her new friend, but the seduction is stopped without rancor. No one changes. They find friends, almost lose them, but re-establish them. The film is as restful as a gentle friend.
Rohmer = talk, usually thoughtful talk; in this case very thoughtful talk as the protagonist teaches philosophy and that occasionally becomes the topic of conversation. Love is also discussed. And life. And desires. People manipulate. People are manipulated. People realize they have been manipulated and respond with varying degrees of annoyance or anger. All much more interesting and engaging than it sounds.
Rohmer captures the mood of spring quite well in this simple tale peppered with dialogues of "true" philosophy.
