Library Journal Review

Two of Eric Rohmer's (Pauline at the Beach; Claire's Knee) "Tales of the Four Seasons" receive long-awaited digital makeovers. Making its stateside debut, Summer finds a recent college grad forced to choose among several young women vying for his affections while on a carefree seaside vacation. In Winter, two made-for-each-other lovers fatefully reunite five years after accidentally losing touch. Deceptively light on the surface but substantial, Rohmer's works are keenly observed but languorous. Patience is required. © Copyright 2015.
