Storyline

Two young people, Walter and Charlotte, are walking through a small village in Switzerland a snowy winter day. Walter introduces Charlotte to Clara, hoping to make Charlotte jealous. After saying good-bye to Clara, Walter accompanies Charlotte into her house, although she doesn't want him to. Charlotte is hungry and cooks a steak. She asks Walter if he wants a piece of it. He says no, but she gives him a small piece anyway. He wants a kiss, and she says no. She starts to compare herself with Clara, who Walter agrees is more beautiful. In spite of this, Walter says he likes Charlotte much more, but she thinks he is lying. She notices that he is cold and shivering. She hugs him, he kisses her, and she starts kissing him. After leaving the house he accompanies her to the train. Written by Maths Jesperson {maths.jesperson1@comhem.se}

Purely enjoyable

Eric Rohmer's short "Présentation ou Charlotte et son steak" (something like "Presentation or Charlotte and her steak") follows Walter, Charlotte and Clara on a ordinary day simply walking on a snowy place. Then, Walter takes Charlotte to her home, spends some time with her with one single purpose: to kiss her, telling he's in love with her but also provoking her by telling that he likes Clara best. Charlotte refuses giving him a kiss, and only offers a piece of her steak as lunch. In the meantime, they have some conversations about trivial things while he still tries to get a kiss from the girl.

Here's a unusual and forgettable short film whose major attractive is to see Jean-Luc Godard as an actor, and he's a good one. There's nothing so interesting about the story, although it's quite charming, a little bit funny but nothing memorable dignifying of a great director. It was filmed in 1951 with two actresses, who were later dubbed by another (and more famous!) actresses, Anna Karina and Stéphane Audran, so the only one who's really present is Godard.

It's well made, very nice, enjoyable, exclusively and purely that! 6/10
