Reinette and Mirabelle are two young girls. Reinette lives in the countryside, Mirabelle in Paris. They meet during a holiday of Mirabelle in the country, when Reinette helps her to repair the tube of her bicycle and shows her the beauties of nature and in particular the 'blue hour'. They like each other and decide to take a flat together in Paris, where they'll attend at the University. But isn't so easy to live together when the characters are so different: as Reinette is simple and enthusiastic, as Mirabelle is obscure and lazy. Written by

I think I used the same words about Eric Rohmer's Conte d'hiver, who also directed this movie, about two friends who meet in the country and later live together in Paris, consists of 4 segments. All four slow-paced and totally true to life. The two great actresses, the dialogs and the storylines themselves are all taken out of life, almost documentary-like. I liked the third one the most. It is a true joy to see these two different friends. They are a quiet couple in Paris quite different from the the two friends in also recommended La Vie Revee Des Anges.
