A Tale of Winter
One Show Only!
Wed, Jan 21 at 8PM
French Cinémathèque

Eric Rohmer was unsurpassed at creating intelligent romantic comedies and intelligent female characters. A TALE OF WINTER, one of his most genial and audacious films, is a superb example of both facets. A young couple, Félicie and Charles, meet while on holiday and fall deeply in love. In a fatal slip, she gives him the wrong address, and, as a result, he disappears from her life. Five years later, at Christmas time, Félicie is a hairdresser in the Paris suburbs with a daughter (Charles’) and two lovers: the successful Maxence and the intellectual Loïc. She loves them both, but, as she says, “There’s love and love,” and the love that counts is the one she still holds for the long lost Charles.
