Le Rayon Vert tests the boundary of creating a character so repulsive that you don’t care about the story. Fortunately, it wins: this is a great story. It really understands loneliness, and it is particularly shrewd regarding identity. There are square pegs and round holes but if the green ray of a setting sun can diffract around a globe, then we might just be OK.

Nice conclusion.

chardy, half way through I thought you had saved me from checking this movie out and then came that last paragraph. Identity exploration is my weakness. :) Thanks for the great write up!

Cheers Sandy, I would recommend it. Granted, something tells me I am going to like a few of his others more.

No. Only this.

This is where I'm supposed to review Eric Rohmer's My Night at Maud's, but I'm not going to. This was to be my 2nd Rohmer, following Claire's Knee which I loved. Only, I couldn't get into this and it felt like I needed to approach Rohmer differently, especially since there are so many of his left to see.
