Rohmer takes my breath away whenever he manages to transform daily insecurities about love and relationships into devices that are able to trigger self-discovery and existencial change. And in A Good Marriage this is exactly what is lacking. It is still a good movie, but one unable to honor it's creator's talent.
Rather painful to put oneself in Sabin's shoes. 1) I don't get her lifestyle; 2) I don't get how she manages to have such absurd beliefs; 3) I feel ashamed for her chase after weird ideals and a clearly uninterested man. Anyway, Rohmer created a rare specimen. Three stars for my discomfort & all relatable tantrums and sceneries
What a performance by Béatrice Romand! Sabine is that real-life character that both annoys and fascinates you. She acts infantile and playful in a ridiculous fashion, but somehow it suits her and actually makes her genuinely attractive. Rohmer's talent to create enthralling films with barely any significant plot keeps on amazing me.
