  3. Benjamin Reid's rating of the film Suzanne's Career

    What Rohmer lacks in terms of new wave cinematic style, he makes up for with pathos. These characters are very real, and the film really toys with our perceptions of them throughout. Though Rohmer's narrators are naive and self-interested, part of the joy of his films is reading against them.

  4. dionysus67's rating of the film Suzanne's Career

    Stylistically rudimentary Rohmer, yet impressively fluid and naturalistic, a worthy progenitor of the joys to follow. The flirtatious dynamics among dyads and triads are effectively alternated and the clumsy 'duckling' Suzanne proves a quick learner as resourceful as her licentious or self-righteously reserved 'lovers'. The final shot bears the same resonance as Germi's "Divorce Italian Style", minus the comedy.

  5. VincentVendetta's rating of the film Suzanne's Career

    Little boys need lessons taught to them, even when those little boys are 18 years old.

  6. FISCHER's rating of the film Suzanne's Career

    Une découverte qui s'impose. Ce second "conte moral", après "La boulangère de Monceau" souffre tout de même d'un désastreux jeu des acteurs au bord du malaise, de la récitation, de la constipation et de l'affectation. Une curiosité à ne pas éviter... www.cinefiches.com

  8. Victor Morosoff's rating of the film Suzanne's Career

  9. Aardsy's rating of the film Suzanne's Career

    Banal, with an air of wickedness.

  10. panoramaofhell's rating of the film Suzanne's Career

    is this film here to prove that men are assholes?

  11. letters never sent's rating of the film Suzanne's Career

    Somewhat reminiscent of chabrol's Les Cousins, but lighter and more playful.

  12. nessmj's rating of the film Suzanne's Career

    4.5 - rather mysterious at times. really adore the ambiguities that characterize suzanne. resting in the odd grey area that often characterizes human interaction, the strange contradiction of emotion of young men, the emotional ease with which some can pass to and from one another. remarkable.

  13. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Suzanne's Career

    Just as inconsequential as “Bakery Girl of Monceau.”

  14. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Suzanne's Career

    Eric Rohmer's Moral Tales start to pick up steam and develop more towards feature-length. In case it wasn't clear from the other ones, it sure as hell is clear here that they're about caddish, oblivious men and women who are a good deal smarter. The "career" of the title has more to do with her love life than anything else, and by the end, she's learned a lesson while her exploiters are still stuck in adolescence.

  15. Renton47's rating of the film Suzanne's Career

    An incisive portrait of the casual misogyny of competitive men whose persuasion on an unsuspecting woman also creates the foundation for further hatred - how the give and take of dominant, manipulating relationships create cycles of self-abasement and unease. But Suzanne is no sap, and Rohmer depicts her as the only party ultimately liberated from the cycle. Complex fully-formed at 55 minutes, in itself impressive

  16. mlstrx's rating of the film Suzanne's Career

    early rohmer is too "french new wave" for me

  17. lndah's rating of the film Suzanne's Career

    I didn't realize 6 moral tales were about getting involve with absorbing characters and how to deal with it.

  18. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Suzanne's Career

    This film is 55 minutes long and breezes right through them and never feels overlong or too short. Well done Rohmer!

  19. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Suzanne's Career

    Cuando se trata de dilemas morales, Rohmer despliega personajes que son de admirar, pero hasta cierto punto son repugnantes. Esto curiosamente le ocurre al protagonista principal de este capítulo, quien está en el dilema de lo correcto y lo ajeno, este último, su deseo. La amoralidad como meta.

  20. Eduardo's rating of the film Suzanne's Career

    Eric Rohmer renders characters (not caricatures) more fully in 55 min than most contemporary movies do in 90 mins +. So much under the surface in this one, for one, I think the main character is a bit more in love with his male friend, than in the two women who show interest in him. Also the scene in which they "conjur" a spirit is brilliant.

  21. - Caltiki -'s rating of the film Suzanne's Career

  22. bartkl's rating of the film Suzanne's Career

    It's real, insightful and complete. The main characters are interesting and realistic, and their dynamic is complex and beautiful. The ultimate moral teaching of the film tops it all off. This is a style that I can endure for hours!

  23. DSPRKY's rating of the film Suzanne's Career

    What _is_ her career? This entry in the Six Moral Tales is perhaps more stark than the others; while those I've seen end with some sense of emotional ambiguity, this one doesn't even end happily. It's also ironic that marriage is seen as the "finish line" here—that's perhaps more telling than anything else Bertrand says.

  24. A47's rating of the film Suzanne's Career

    Despite a different outlook, very Wes Anderson filmmaking in parts. "I had nothing against her, I simply hated her" -strange, because from the very first shot, so did I... The foundation for "Cruel Intentions." Repulsed, morally -I suppose. Then I started to feel bad for her.
