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.

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.

It has, as ever, enormous compassion, wit and insight, and its ending is exquisitely affecting.
