La carrière de Suzanne

Éric Rohmer France, 1963

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.
