Film Studies major Will Stephenson continues ICE’s informal weekly series, selecting a variety of world cinema classics and subcultural curiosities.
“I hope that ”Pauline at the Beach” will win new admirers for Mr. Rohmer, one of the most original and elegant film makers at work today in any country. Though his films depend a lot on talk, don’t be misled. They are literate but not especially literary, even if the English-language subtitles reinforce this impression. Mr. Rohmer’s works could not exist in any other form. Their particular character would float off any printed page. They combine images, language, action and cinematic narrative fluidity to create a kind of cinema that no one else has ever done before. ”Pauline at the Beach” is another rare Rohmer treat.” -New York Times
