Rendezvous In Paris

Another relatively lightweight sketch film from Eric Rohmer (1994)shot, like the 1986 Four Adventures of Reinette and Mirabelle, in 16-millimeter. The three sketches all involve romantic meetings in public places, bridged by a cornball singer and accordion player; their charm lies in the Paris exteriors and the unknown but adept youthful cast. Though the stories are all well crafted, the film seems slighter and a bit more smug than most other Rohmer pictures. In French with subtitles. 100 min. (JR)
