Tales of the Four Seasons
Tales of the Four Seasons was the final film series by Eric Rohmer, previously responsible for two of cinema’s most famous cycles: Six Moral Tales, and Comedies and Proverbs.
Set in different locations within France (Paris and its suburbs, Nevers, Brittany, the Rhône Valley), each installment of Four Seasons—A Tale of Springtime (1990), A Tale of Winter (1992), A Tale of Summer (1996), and A Tale of Autumn (1998)—presents with compelling drama and deft humor a variation on Rohmer’s signature thematic preoccupations: the frustration of romantic desire, the difficulty of communication, and the necessity of maintaining faith and ethical integrity in conflicts wrought by pride, ego, or misunderstanding.
Experience all four seasons on the big screen, with each film screened only once during their respective seasons.
