Trivia:
When Pierre confronts Pauline at her cousin's house, Pauline is interrupted in reading a Gallimard book entitled 'L'Ennemi public n° 2', written by Gérard Lecas. Lecas, while an author of not overwhelming popularity, was also involved in filmmaking, particularly in the films of director Eric Rohmer, and was in fact working as a sound assistant on Pauline at the Beach (1983). 'L'Ennemi public n° 2', his debut novel, had been published in 1982, the year in which the film was being made.See more »

My favorite Rohmer film, 20 October 2001
Author: Gerry-12 (gerryf.gerard@gmail.com) from Columbus Ohio USA

Pauline just manages to keep her place in the center of this film, and how nice that is. Her indecisive cousin, a Rohmer type, almost takes over the film with a great figure. The two men are as unreliable as Rohmer's men always are. Pauline, though, is just the acute teen age observer that one can really love. Her boyfriend shows a lot of rectitude too.

This film is a kind of testament to whatever it is in teenagers that makes most of them survive fairly intact, incredible though that survival may be in retrospect. A sweet Rohmer film, and my favorite.

A cute touch is Pauline's two bathing suits - the one that is barely there shows the gawky but unselfconscious teen ager she is, and the modest one suggests the sexy woman she will soon decide to be.

Rohmer's work, even more than most good directors, is a series of essays on a single theme. This one gives more hope that women and men may be able to live together than most of the others do. Still I think Rohmer remains puzzled about how the sexes coexist.
