Additional Information

OscarÂ(r)-nominated* writer/director Eric Rohmer (Pauline at the Beach) delivers this 'splendid, engaging, delightful revelation (The Village View) that sparkles with humor andsizzles with romance. Heightened by the splendor of the French countryside, A Tale of Springtime is radiantly alive, blissfully awareand among the most beautiful and enlightening [films] in world cinema (Los Angeles Times)! The well-ordered life of Jeanne, a high school philosophy teacher, suddenly spins into disorder when a young stranger she meets at a party involvesher in a devilish scheme. Natacha, an adolescent pianist with a penchant for subtly playing her elders, invites Jeanne to her father's home...hoping to make a match of the two and send her father's current lover, Eve, packing. But when the tempestuous Eve arrives at every chance meeting between Jeanne and Natacha's father, fireworks of an entirely different sort erupt, and everyone is forced toexamine his or her own philosophies on love, relationships and other sordid affairs of the human heart. *1970: Story and Original Screenplay, My Night at Maud's

I`ll be very short and this is in regards for the quality of the dvd, not the great movie. MGM simply managed to blew it. this is 2002. release and they somehow forgot to make it enhanced for 16:9 TVs. shame on them. the 3 rating is there just as I had to put something.
I liked, but didn't love this film. The two women, Jeanne and Natacha, are enjoyable to watch. I especially liked their developing friendship and their conversations. As a director, Rohmer takes his time, but is never boring. Each of the two women had their faults - Natacha was a bit too pushy and manipulative while Jeanne was too analytical at times. Human beings have their good and bad points and it's hard to achieve that in a movie.

By the end, I wondered what any of the characters had learned or gained. I felt Jeanne was unhappy at the beginning and unhappy when the final credits rolled. Perhaps I was supposed to feel like the ring wearer of Gyges watching events unfold, then stepping away. I think it was this lack of character growth that made this film an unsatisfying experience for me. I'm glad I watched it, though.
