Storyline

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 Maurizio Semolic <semolic@oat.ts.astro.it>

for Rohmer enthusiasts only
21 November 2010 | by mjneu59See all my reviews

A typical Eric Rohmer film is not unlike the ideal croissant: a light and flaky taste of empty calories. His fans don't expect anything more, and will likely find four times the fun in this quartet of mini-parables involving two young pals with very little in common. Reinette is a naive and slightly neurotic child of nature, while Mirabelle is the more demure, sophisticated city girl, and their so-called adventures don't amount to much more than mildly comic pokes at all-too human idiosyncrasies. Each of the four stories exhibits varying degrees of cleverness and charm, but with no binding continuity between them and no real motive or resolution (all part of their appeal, no doubt) the end result is a whimsical but insignificant movie, easy enough to enjoy but difficult to recall in detail twenty minutes later.
