  1. Richard Tines's rating of the film The Bakery Girl of Monceau

    I watched this short (20 mins or so) because I thought the synopsis sounded innocent. But this is not so simple. A young man starts to semi-stalk a woman he meets on the street, but one day she disappears...while still looking for her, the cad begins (somewhat out of spite) to return the flirtations of a young bakery cashier, leading to some uncomfortable moments and a date...but then the other woman reappears,,,

    Spoiler Alert One point taken away for the blatant attack on Paris' cleanliness.

    This is a nice little film about how motivated men are at trying to get laid by a beautiful woman.

  7. Sarika Joglekar's rating of the film The Bakery Girl of Monceau

    it's.. good? almost knee-jerk turned it off within the first 5 minutes, it is so male.

  8. Johnny Seeker's rating of the film The Bakery Girl of Monceau

    There is a special place in hell for those who litter.

  9. Duncan Gray's rating of the film The Bakery Girl of Monceau

    Note the curious title of Rohmer's series: "Six Moral Tales." It has a ring of Aesop, as if each imparts a lesson. But instead, they're centered on (male) characters who have trouble learning from their own lives—the (female) objects of their affection are smarter. The "moral" becomes the hero's excuse; thus the audience understands more than the narrator and this inviting, friendly short becomes downright modernist.

  10. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film The Bakery Girl of Monceau

    The first of Rohmer's six moral tales. Interesting, but slight and forgettable. A twenty some minute short film, so you can't expect too much from it I suppose.

  11. Renton47's rating of the film The Bakery Girl of Monceau

    The emphasis on the littering makes a nice parallel to the litterbug's attitudes to the persons of his desire. All sweets no consequence, he consumes with an appetite for immediate satisfaction, leading to some hurried agreements and a few disappointed possibilities for happiness. Shot with casual ease on the streets, this short is nice if minor.

  17. Hani's rating of the film The Bakery Girl of Monceau

    The documentary-like cinematography was a brave decision to make this film. Many would easily fall into staged fictional shots with music, etc.. My favorite part was when he was waiting for Sylvie outside the bakery and it took her too long to show up again. This awkward waiting made the spectator expect all the possibilities. The last shot of Jacqueline was when her picking the 2nd biscuit. Too painful and sad.

  18. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Bakery Girl of Monceau

    Una historia simple que se convierte en una historia que deja marca. Que no se confunda que Rohmer tiene algo de nouvelle vague, cosa que no es así. Rohmer aquí es apolítico, apoyado en un cine conservador, el de Renoir, por ejemplo. Su cine se inicia de forma superficial para luego escavar el alma. Es la anécdota para el protagonista, pero para el espectador un golpe de la vida, una víctima y mucho desencanto.

  21. Pedro's rating of the film The Bakery Girl of Monceau

    "The Bakery Girl" waste-throwing + pastry-eating = "Out of the Past" chain-smoking.

  23. bartkl's rating of the film The Bakery Girl of Monceau

    Dreams do come true at times, and sometimes stories don't end too well for everyone. This tale is raw and real, it hurts to see the bestial truth of the mechanics of love, but it makes perfect sense. The ending is a bit rushed, which I both like and dislike. It's a very nice short either way.

    I love the casual littering and pastry eating on sidewalks
