Reviews

Eric Rohmer's light-hearted romantic comedy, set amongst the vineyards of the Rhône Valley, concludes his film cycle THE TALES OF THE FOUR SEASONS. Best friends Magali, a widow, and Isabelle, a happily married bookshop owner, have known each other since childhood. Although Magali enjoys her life as a wine grower, she admits that she would relish some male companion- ship; a confession that prompts Isabelle to secretly find her friend a man. After placing a lonely hearts ad, Isabelle chooses a suitor, but finds that things don't quite go according to plan...

A very, very good script played by wonderfully-cast actors, directed by someone who knows when (and how) to move a camera and when to keep it still (and dares to defy the Tolstoyan edict that happy families can't be interesting.) Saturated with the golden autumn light and shade of the title, its juxtaposition of 20-something and 40-something couples is as nearly perfect as anything I've ever seen.

This is the last in the 'Tales of the Four Seasons' series of films by Eric Rohmer, and it is just as accomplished as the other three. Rohmer's films (except the occasional historical foray) are always easily identifiable - full of laid back scenes, languid conversations, and the lack of much plot action.
The action, instead, occurs in the emotional lives of the characters, and in this case, in the life of a middle aged winemaker living in the beautifully filmed French countryside, who is tentatively looking for love with the help/interference of her friend. There are moments of affection, embarrassment, hope and real poignancy, and as always with Rohmer this is a film full of affection for its characters, through all their misunderstandings and struggles.
It's life affirming and leaves a glow of satisfaction, although this is not perhaps one for fans of Hollywood action thrillers to buy and devour.

What are the things which make up romantic compatibility? And from where does love arise between two people? Can individual's sense of self be merged? These questions are at the heart of this warm, sunny and occasionally quirky film which is set in the vineyards and cafes of the Rhone valley. I watched it in a mid-winter cold spell, and it certainly lifted the oppression of the winter for a little while. The story line is strong and we are kept guessing- the lives of Magali, a widow and mildly eccentric wine-grower, and Isabelle, a happily married book-shop owner are subtly portrayed with a certain dept of characterisation. Overall, it is a generous, enjoyably humorous and genuinely humane film.

I loved "An Autumn Tale." The characters are warm and likeable and interestingly portrayed.The level of detail and understanding Eric Rohmer shows of how people interact with one another,and why they behave as they do,is terrific.Terrific too, the beauty of the French countryside - the vineyard looked so nice that I wanted to go and buy one! This is a film you can watch time after time even though there isn't a stunt in sight.

This was a thoroughly enchanting addition to his canon.The sensitivity of the leading actresses, Rivierre and Romand especially, as two female friends 'of a certain age'.The way the story,simple in itself is drawn out.The use of landscape and scenery complements the enactment of hesitation,doubt, unhurried judgement, with people at ease with their environment,who yet are self aware enough to know of making wrong decisions or not knowing the real truth behind the polite lies,evasions and facades people hide behind.This was a charming tale well told.
