“Eric Rohmer's ultra-chaste meditation on sex and religion from 1969 is still a delight” The Guardian ★★★★
An engineer thinks he’s found the woman of his dreams but gives in to temptation with a free-spirited divorcee in Eric Rohmer’s drama. Before he went to the beach with the kids in his later conversation pieces, Eric Rohmer centred his first series of six ‘moral tales’ on this witty duel of values, belief and commitment between two thirty-somethings in a bedroom interlude precipitated by snow. Life’s a beach at the end.
