One represented truth, and the other a mistake
Oh my. I blind bought the Moral Tales box set during the last B&N sale mostly thanks to my friends trip, fisticuffs and Sean – all pushing me to watch more Rohmer and I wanted to start 2013 off by opening the same. Turned out to be such a good decision because this is just such a perfect little film. It’s bittersweet tone encapsulates exactly what I crave from films. In <30 minutes, Rohmer captures all our little caprices and game-playing and silliness when it comes to relationships. The gliding camera, the voiceover that plunges us into the film, the way Rohmer plays with sound.. there’s so much to love here.
