Le beau mariage

Éric Rohmer France, 1982

DSPRKY's rating of the film A Good Marriage

Who doesn't daydream? From the opening credits (funky orange accompanied by ridiculous synths) and La Fontaine parable, it is apparent that something is very different about Le beau mariage. This is a refreshing comedy—there are no "jokes" to speak of, but the way the characters' actions betray the philosophical stances they are always so eager to establish prompted more than a few wry chuckles.
