Pauline at the Beach (1983)

Pauline at the Beach is the third of Eric Rohmer's six "Comedies and Proverbs" films, based on the proverb "He who talks too much will hurt himself" or "A wagging tongue bites itself." Fifteen year-old Pauline (Amanda Langlet) and her older cousin, the curvy blonde Marion (Arielle Dombasle), take a late summer vacation at the beach. Marion runs into her old friend Pierre (Pascal Greggory), a handsome windsurfer, who loves her. But she also meets the older, balding and more cynical Henri (Feodor Atkine) and proceeds to throw herself at him. Meanwhile, Pauline meets a perfectly nice young fellow her own age, Sylvain (Simon de La Brosse), though Marion thinks she can do better. The turning point comes when Henri has an afternoon fling with a candy girl Louisette (Rosette). Marion arrives, and Henri pushes both Louisette and Sylvain in the bathroom together. Henri is cleared, but now it looks like Sylvain was cheating on Pauline. Jealous Pierre tries to straighten things out, but his is the "wagging tongue" that bites itself. This is a perfect example of Rohmer, with a gorgeous, relaxing summery atmosphere and characters ready to flit off to dinner, or swimming or spending the night on a whim. Each character is intelligent enough to analyze their own feelings and desires, though their opinions can change over the course of the film. Rohmer's point seems to be that the sexually innocent Pauline is the most honest character because she hasn't yet learned to deceive. When she sleeps with Sylvain for the first time, it just happens naturally with no delusion. But the most interesting thing about the film is that the handsome, surfing ladykiller Pierre ends up alone; all that self-analysis and self-deception have led the girls off in skewed directions. read more...

Italian for Beginners (2000)

Most Dogme 95 films (The Celebration, The Idiots, Mifune, The King Is Alive) seem to ooze suffering and misery as an unwritten part of their fabled list of rules. But the new Italian for Beginners (Denmark's official entry for Oscar consideration) feels warm and sweet and slightly bruised, just like one of the pastries poor Olympia (Anette Stovelbaek) constantly drops on the floor of the bakery where she works. read more...

Desert Hearts (1985)

Donna Deitch's Desert Hearts was a rare thing in 1985 and, sadly, still a rare thing in 2017; it's a grown-up drama about two flawed, intelligent women who fall in love, and maybe get to be happy in the end. One could argue that this facet alone makes it a great or important film, but it's also a tender, emotionally honest, and lovely little movie. Weirdly, it's set even farther back in time, in 1959, in Reno, Nevada. read more...
