Product Description

Eric Rohmer's charming, witty and exquisitely observed quartet of romantic comedies are among the veteran director s most popular and acclaimed works. A Tale of Springtime An enchanting comedy of manners in which a newly formed friendship between two girls is put to the test when one suspects the other of some mischievous matchmaking. A Winter's Tale A young Parisian woman's idyllic holiday romance results in the birth of a daughter. Through a mix-up over her address, she loses touch with the baby's father, but dreams of one day being reunited with her lost love. A Summer's Tale In a beautiful Brittany seaside resort, a young man becomes romantically entangled with three beautiful young women. As their patience with him wears thin, he must make the difficult choice between them. An Autumn Tale The final story is a light-hearted romantic comedy set in the vineyards of the Rhône Valley. When Isabelle attempts to play matchmaker for her lifelong friend Magali, she finds things don t go quite according to plan.

Spanning almost a decade of Rohmer's work, these films encapsulate his focus on moral messages to us all. Each film is delightful in its own way, 'en ete' and 'en hiver' complement each other by focusing mainly around the (mainly romantic) relationships of four characters, whilst 'Printemps' and 'd'automne' have more developed plotlines and are more rewarding as such due to the richly developed characters.

In this way, the most interesting of all the films is 'Conte d'Automne' purely because of the focus on the two excellent female leads. The story focuses on Isabelle who takes it upon herself to find a date for her friend Magali who runs a vineyard. A large part of the film takes place over the stunning landscape of Magali's business and enhances the conversations and interactions between the characters. My favourite however has to be 'Conte d'ete' because of Gaspard's initial outlook on his life and how this is altered through meeting Margot and their many coastal wanderings and discussions throughout his summer stay. The backdrop of Brittany's beaches and coastal paths also raises the beauty of the piece.

Well worth a viewing, toute l'annee ronde!

4.0 out of 5 stars four great films 21 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase
I really liked this collection. I won't comment about the films themselves since there are plenty of reviews elsewhere.
The DVD's are transferred reasonably well. The films are obviously made on a budget and this shows in the photography, but that is not a fault of the DVD's themselves.
The DVD boxes say "enhanced for widescreen TV's" although I wonder what this means since the films are all presented in 4:3 and not 16:9 This is probably the ratio the director intended (from the composition of the shots) and a mistake on the box.
