A Tale of Autumn

The concluding installment of the “Tales of the Four Seasons” tetralogy is a breezy take on the classic American romantic comedies that influenced Rohmer and his New Wave peers. Set in the Rhône Valley and taking full advantage of its golden vineyards, A Tale of Autumn concerns simultaneous schemes to find a new love for reserved winegrower and widow Magali (Beatrice Romand). While Magali’s son’s girlfriend (Alexia Portal) attempts to pair her with a former professor and lover (Didier Sandre), Magali’s friend Isabelle (Marie Rivière) assumes a false identity in order to bait eligible bachelor Gérald (Alain Libolt). The misunderstandings that follow are pure Rohmer in revealing the humor of human folly and foible.

FEATURED REVIEW
Jeff Millar, Houston Chronicle

The new film by the 79-year-old French grand master Eric Rohmer is called Autumn Tale. Among the many things it is about is how the young and the middle-aged go about the same task: the middle-aged with decorum and in a roundabout way, the young bluntly.
