    BERENICE

    Éric Rohmer France, 1954

    Before Claire’s knee, there were Bérénice’s teeth! Based on an Edgar Allan Poe story, Éric Rohmer’s bold, early short is a tale of obsession that feels distinctly more sinister than his later films. Shot in André Bazin’s house, photographed and edited by Jacques Rivette, and starring Rohmer himself.

    RENDEZ-VOUS IN PARIS

    Éric Rohmer France, 1995

    Structured episodically, Rendezvous in Paris is Rohmer’s homage to the French capital and to the role of coincidence in everyday life. Moving gently across the city’s cafes, parks, and back streets, each of the three stories establishes a romantic tie with the urban space around it. Masterful.

    THE KREUTZER SONATA

    Éric Rohmer France, 1956

    Produced by Jean-Luc Godard, who also plays a supporting role, this 16mm short by French master Éric Rohmer jumps between the interiors of Paris’ 1950s apartments—with a glimpse of the Cahiers du Cinéma offices!—and its charming boulevards. Featuring cameos by Claude Chabrol and François Truffaut.

    THE SIGN OF LEO

    Éric Rohmer France, 1959

    Rohmer’s debut feature lucidly conjures Parisian ’50s bohemia, uncovering the trials that buffet an artist in the face of an often-cruel world. Produced by Chabrol (and with a cheeky cameo from Godard!), this New Wave drama may not have been a commercial success yet it won the hearts of cinephiles.

    THE ROMANCE OF ASTREA AND CELADON

    Éric Rohmer France, 2007

    We love Rohmer’s signature dissections of human relationships in the modern world. But he was also drawn to the past too. His swansong is a deliciously light tale of longing and cross-dressing in the 17th century. One of the most erudite of the French New Wave at his most playful and sensual!
