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}

Early Short Follows Roemers Theme
19 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I won't add anymore to the short plot already well described by previous reviewers. I give this short experiment a positive review for its ability to captivate me. I happen to glimpse the snowy but inviting landscape and hear the mysterious opening soundtrack and without having any idea what film happen to be streaming on my monitor I stopped to watch. I found it very charming especially the young man scheming to get a kiss from Charlotte. I didn't find out until it was over that it was directed by Eric Roemer. Furthermore I didn't find out until just now on IMDb that the charming young man was Jean-Luc Godard. Having already seen all six Moral Tales, I'd like to point out that this film follow Roemers pattern of featuring a man choosing between two women. If for no other reason than getting a chance to see young Godard, I suggest looking it up. Its available on Hulu.
