      summer lover

      It's rare for a woman to repeatedly strike up a conversation with a man, perhaps the non-dialogue and super-long prologue hints at this - Rohmer's forte

      Do you have a girlfriend to accept female friends?

      People who study anthropology, especially women, should have keen insight

      Can it be said that a contradictory person will become more and more fragrant, and at a certain age, there will be a mutation and become popular?

      patience. opportunity.

      What kind of...

      three lovers

      Watching Rohmer's movies in free time is a relaxing and interesting thing. The characters in the film often go on vacation, meet some strangers on the way, and start talking. The slow rhythm, long dialogue and leisurely scenery always make the audience feel like a vacation.

      "Summer Story" can be regarded as my favorite of Rohmer's works so far. Rohmer sees love thoroughly, and sees men and women more thoroughly. The most important parts of Rohmer's films are the characters, whose...

      Summer youth and steering wheel

      The story of summer is the spring dreams and repeated pursuits in the minds of boys and girls. Young love is so vigorous but nothing is achieved. At the time, it seemed that the frustrated time was always wasted. make people blush

      The image of the car cannot be ignored in watching the movie. The car seems to represent freedom, and the young men and women on the blue seaside can be imagined from the car window. Whenever the two women holding the steering wheel in Rohmer's shot are...

      Talking about the feelings of Eric Rohmer's "Four Seasons Stories" series

      After reading Eric Rohmer's "Story of Four Seasons" series, the first is the low saturation and low contrast in color, and the color tone feels particularly individual, and then the characters' clothes and backgrounds are very minimalist, the most unforgettable It's just the golden waves. The second is the storyline, the ambiguity between the characters, the boys all have huge erotic desires hidden in their hearts, the girls are all restrained and resisted while refusing and welcoming, which...

      The four seasons of summer. Summer sailor with roses. Perhaps the point is not the choice, but whether you admit to love or not, and whether you can let go if you don't love it, and if you love it, do you dare to pursue it? The finishing touches are pretty subtle. Xu Shi hinted at a wobbly doomed ending. Summer is hot, have you decided where to go?...

      It took Rachel ten seasons to find that Ross was the best fit for her, and it was unlikely that Kasbah would use the short summer to make a choice. The attitudes of young people are well captured, we are always bold and timid, trying to rise up to chase love and swaying, what a lovely and beautiful...

      #新看# It may be that the state of "friendship and more than lovers have not reached" is the most perfect relationship between the two sexes---it has both the yearning for admiration and the independence of objective inspection, and the vague affection with Margo is indeed like "as if" There is no story", constructing a deep discussion about emotion in the wandering motion mirror. The tone changes from bright to hazy, and at the end it is bright again. The character reflected by the three-stage...

      The look and feel is better than "Spring Story": Kasbah and Margot's various walks and conversations are reminiscent of "Love Before Dawn" in 1995; playing guitar and singing with Lian in the room is reminiscent of "Love at Dusk" in 2004 At Sunset"; I thought of 2013's "Before Midnight" when arguing with Lena; however, "Summer's Tale" is still not as good as the last three films for my heart and enjoyment. PS:The cover → little...

    Movie plot

    For an unclear agreement, Jasper came to the resort town of Brittany's summer seaside, checked into a friend's vacant room during the summer vacation, and waited for the "so-called girlfriend" to meet him. Jasper studied mathematics, but loved folk music, and occasionally wrote songs for his own amusement. He met Margaux, who was working in a restaurant, on the beach. Although Margot already has a boyfriend, she secretly likes Jasper,...

    Evaluation action

    Spring love comes and goes without a trace; summer love is half-hearted and doesn’t know where to go; autumn love needs to be taken care of until the fruit is ripe; winter love has to wait forever.
    Rohmer, a love expert in the film industry, slowly and carefully condensed his research experience into four films: The Story of the Four Seasons - with spring, summer, autumn and winter as the theme and background respectively, telling the...

    Movie quotes

    • Margot: Friendship's a gag, but trifles are serious!

    • Lena: Some days I'd like to be stupid and ugly. I only meet guys who want to paw me. Never anyone I can just talk to. I think it's a shame... that nine times out of ten, when a guy talks to a girl... he's got another thought in mind.

    • Lena: [singing] l'll be gone for months / Leaving Margot / Raise the sail, Santiano / Leaving the harbor of St. Malo
