Eric Rohmer Retrospective Showcases Breezy Side of French Cinema

Eric Rohmer


Most of the luminaries of the French New Wave have either kicked the bucket or burned out (a lot of people don’t realize that Godard is actually still alive), but Eric Rohmer goes on making decent films. What sets him apart from ordinary directors is his consistency and effortless mastery of cinema. Rohmer’s movies have such a disgustingly natural flow that they make filmmaking seem easy. This month, the Busan Cinematheque is offering a feast for film buffs with this retrospective that pulls mostly from the auteur’s “Comedies and Proverbs,” “Six Moral Tales,” and “4 Seasons” series.
