La carrière de Suzanne

Éric Rohmer France, 1963

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.
