Full Moon in Paris
Éric Rohmer
1984 | 102 min | Colour | Digital
French with English subtitles

“He who has two women loses his soul; he who has two houses loses his mind.” In Rohmer’s fourth film in his Comedies and Proverbs series, Louise, a young interior decorator (Pascale Ogier, Venice Film Festival Best Actress winner), keeps two homes – one with her boyfriend, Remi, and one without. She chases the freedom of the single life in her Paris pied-à-terre, while Remi stays in the other residence, seemingly a homebody. Rohmer’s finely drawn characterization brings out the confusions and small devotions that complicate a familiar paradox, rarely rendered with such subtlety and maturity." – Film Society of Lincoln Centre
