I have really come to love Eric Rohmer and I can thank THE BOOK for that - where I was introduced to the director with My Night at Maud's. Since then I've slowly been rationing to myself the rest of his catalog, never watching more than one at a time and never too close together. I like to take his movies like a plant takes Miracle Gro - a scoop or so every other month. His films are simple, subtle, beautiful, sometimes heartbreaking, thought provoking and usually great. Full Moon in Paris is no exception.

Full Moon in Paris joins My Night at Maud's, Love in the Afternoon, Pauline at the Beach and A Tale of Winter to make it five for Rohmer on my personal 1000 list.

RATING: 8.5/10
