comeandsee's rating of the film Perceval le Gallois

even for rohmer, this one is a really odd one. the set design and the painted background are gorgeous to look at, and rohmer really re-creates the context and feel of the source with his dialogue and blocking. it appears to recall bresson with the bare form, and the almost boredom with battle scenes. focus on the importantance of what is said, and most importantly not said is key to the understanding of this work.
