If you could drink film - Rohmer delivers the water.
29 April 2005 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Just saw this movie (again) yesterday. Still fresh is a quote of an other comment here - yes that is completely right - no signs of wear in story or filming - still satisfying and essential like a cold glass of water for thirst. After seeing all "the movies" over the years this is not at least because of the black and white filming balsam for the ears and the eyes but for the smooth quiet story too. One misses nothing - no digital effects no surround sound no color no superstar actors - in this movie it seems that "fim-time" stands still. Trintignant is very good but Mme. Fabian is even better - her black eyes and face with the beautiful black hair and her body acting says even more than the words she speaks - one should send her an Oscar today. One should try to see the film without tone on - would be a nice experiment..... The end is a surprise and one has to remain concentrated to get and remember the point - then the moral message for me is clear: giving means taking and taking means giving - always - no runaway from that at any time possible......and of course surely not in love & sex.
