The fourth and most emotionally tumultuous of the elder statesmen of the nouvelle vague’s “Comedies and Proverbs” series leans closer to the moralistic than the humorous half its thematic epithet… Shot in Rohmer’s typically unadorned style, with an emphasis on dialogue and situational irony rather than decorous mise-en-scène, the film arrives very subtly at a climax all the more devastating for its inevitability.

Full Moon is deeply poignant to watch again, especially, if like me, you had it bad for Ogier at the time. In 1984, she seemed impeccably glamorous, in a witty, wildly offbeat way; seen today in Full Moon, she looks oddly awkward and childlike, especially with that high-pitched sing-song voice that some French actresses (but by no means all) contrive to use to great effect.
