France 1986
Dir Eric Rohmer
With Marie Rivière, Vincent Gauthier, Béatrice Romand
English subtitles
Certificate 12A

Rohmer’s partly improvised masterpiece concerns a young Parisian’s attempts to find happiness – and, perhaps, since it seems she’s just been dumped, a new lover – during the tricky month of August, when everyone leaves the city to take a holiday. An unsentimental but deeply sympathetic portrait of an idealistic, sometimes irritatingly indecisive protagonist, the film makes hugely expressive use of wind, clouds, shadows and sun.

The screening on Wednesday 16 August 18:20 will be introduced by Jemma Desai, founder of I am Dora.
