The Green Ray


Eric Rohmer's 1986 entry in his `Comedies et Proverbes' series, The Green Ray again demonstrates the French helmer's mastery of mood.

Delphine (Marie Rivière), a Parisian secretary, has planned a holiday trip to Greece, but is let down by her travelling companion. Various friends rally round - one takes her to Cherbourg, one to the Alps, one to Biarritz - but each time Delphine feels out of place and turns tail. Likewise, an assortment of young men show interest, only for Delphine to prove impossibly hard to please.

Can she find contentment and even romance? Well, maybe, given Rohmer's infinite tolerance for the foibles of young women. A witty and elegant delight.
