ONLY PiICK: Romance of Astre and Celadon

Tonight we’re giving it up to the classic foreign film cliche. An Eric Rhomer film is about as film festival as you can get. Old school. In fact he’s been making “morality films” since the 1950s. That’s a pretty long time. Brought to you by the French consulate, this is a story of tough love, where she (a shepherdess) gets mad at him (a shepherd) and well, it’s a whole lot of Romeo and Juliet, but it’s by a French master so….. AOT
