See the film, don't read the reviews,
This review is from: My Girlfriend's Boyfriend (Subtitled) [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Having just read the two reviews posted for this marvellous film, I can only assume that they must have reviewed a different film entirely.
Quite simply this is Rohmer at his marvellous best, and is absolutely a good starting point for any-one interested in starting to view his work. The grim soulless setting - not unusual for Rohmer - only serves to highlight the intensity of the emotions of the two key characters.
I defy any-one who has ever loved not to cry at the ending. There is one moment when our 'heroine' leaps up to wave at her friend, that captures what it is to feel happy and alive better than anything else in the history of cinema.
