Synopsis

In an enchanted forest in 5th century France, lovers Astrea and Celadon are kept apart by their families. After Astrea thinks she sees Celadon flirting with a woman, she sends him away. Surrounded by rivals, nymphs and druids, they must overcome jealousy and temptation to keep their passion alive.

Our take

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!
