Les amours d'Astrée et de Céladon

Éric Rohmer France, 2007

Draughtsman Without Contract's rating of the film The Romance of Astrea and Celadon

So, basically this is one of my contes moral as filmed in 1620. I've had a word with this d'Urfe chap and said we have to lose the odd few thousand pages from the script. Bit of a hard sell but shepherdesses and nymphs can set a few pulses racing, particularly with a bit of well placed decolletage, and the druids could bring in the Lord of the Rings crowd. Magic groves? A cinch after green rays and golden hours.
