Eric Rohmer: The Early Works Film Poster


Triple bill of early work from celebrated French arthouse director Eric Rohmer. 'Le Signe Du Lion' (1962) is Rohmer's directorial debut - a cautionary tale of an American in Paris (Jess Hahn) who believes himself astrologically privileged. On the promise of a possible upcoming inheritance from a dead aunt, he starts spending money he doesn't have and has to reap the whirlwind when it fails to materialise. 'Le Boulangerie De Monceau' (1962) tells the story of a young man (Barbet Schroeder) in a quandary over two beautiful women, one from his local bakery and one a stranger whom he met on the street. 'La Carriere de Suzanne' (1963) features a naïve, retiring student (Philippe Beuzen) drawn to a fellow student, Suzanne (Catherine Sée). He experiences unprecedented emotions when his confident friend (Christian Charrière) steams in and Suzanne seems to like it.
