Critics reviews

I feel almost at one with the Gene Hackman character in Arthur Penn’s Night Moves who remarks that seeing a Rohmer film “is kind of like watching paint dry.” That very nearly describes my experience of the first half hour or so of A Tale of Springtime… If the film got steadily more interesting after that, it was because I became convinced that watching paint dry can be a fairly absorbing activity, at least if the color of the paint keeps changing in the process.
