On lakeside summer holiday, a conflicted older man is dared to have a flirt with two beautiful teenage stepsisters despite his betrothal to a diplomat's daughter and the fact that the girls have boyfriends.
This is not the first movie in which the character of A. Khalo (also known as «Abbatonnos Kharah») appears, very briefly. You might remember that animated character in other more recent films, such as «Marie-Jo K.-K.Rond, Lastérile» or «Madeleine Lavieille Conne». In such a short subject, the 4-times-30-odd seconds of his appearance spoiled (in a very minute way) the fun I had in watching this excellent and original film. Why did Rohmer use such an old limping animated character as a «pointer» to the different scenes... is a mystery to me. But this should not spoil your fun: who suspected the great Hugo of being such a versatile artist? The creator of «Les Misérables» was a real genius! Thanks to Eric Rohmer at his very best. A must-see!
