“Nothing stimulates Eric Rohmer's creative juices more than romantic encounters. The moral quandaries that accompany them provide rich material for exploring the intricate ways that circumstance and character combine to form a person's destiny. And this is vintage Rohmer, though here, in contrast to his recent films, he chooses a male protagonist, a head-hanging young introvert named Gaspard, who . . . finds himself variously involved with three different women while on holiday on the Brittany coast. . . . Who the ambivalent Gaspard eventually ends up with is the question that sustains us through several unexpected turns before Rohmer finally weaves in the final circumstantial twist. This sweetly engaging film, the third in the series Tales of the Four Seasons, is yet further evidence that Rohmer . . . remains cinema's master storyteller.”
