Certificate

Running Time
95 mins

A modern-day French erotic farce from Éric Rohmer, which bagged the best film award at the 1983 Berlin Film Festival. The plot sounds intricate, but is in face quite easy to follow as Marion and her teenage cousin Pauline get involved with various men during a late summer holiday. The dialogue (and there’s plenty of it) is naturalistic and the tone lighthearted but never trivial.

It’s back on screen to launch the Watershed’s En Vacances d’été… with Eric Rohmer August Sunday brunch season.
