(Le Beau mariage)
Sabine, a young arts student, is fed up with her place as mistress to a married man and decides to get herself hitched. Her friend Clarisse suggests a prime candidate to her in the form of the eligible Edmond and the misguided Sabine sets her heart on, excuse me, taking him up the aisle. Edmond isn't easily convinced that he's the sort of guy who'll get married though. This simply plotted movie provides Rohmer with enough of an opportunity for some great dialogue exploring the nature of marriage and its appeal to some and revulsion to others. Slow, deliberately paced and beautifully performed, Le Beau Marriage is a low-key example of how sweet Rohmer can be, and how his perceptions of the bourgeoisie are played out without feeling like you're watching a morality play.
