      David Mermelstein Wall Street Journal “A Tale of Autumn”, set amid the wine culture of the Rhône Valley, looks at love from a more mature perspective, or at least an older one. Feb 17, 2024 Full Review David Ansen Newsweek Autumn Tale [is] the final--and best--of Eric Rohmer's 1990s series Tales of the Four Seasons..what gives this romantic comedy a deeper charm, a special poignancy, is that extra seasoning these well-traveled, wonderfully imagined characters possess. Mar 2, 2018 Full Review Lisa Schwarzbaum Entertainment Weekly Rated: A Sep 7, 2011 Full Review Dennis Harvey 48 Hills ...as enchanting and curiously touching as they are evanescent... May 7, 2021 Full Review Doris Toumarkine Film Journal International The goings-on come across as a bit too lightweight.

      Audience Member In Autumn Tale, the centre of Rohmer's world seems to shift from the moralist, who is self-conscious but hesitant in his actions, to the reverie of the imagination, who prefers to escape the pain of choice. It may be that this is a natural consequence of the characters' advancing age, but the alternate nature of the film suggests that, while there is no way of knowing their past, the status quo has almost certainly been reached out of consistent escapism. In addition to the recurring parallels of solitude - defensiveness, initiative - passivity (Magali) and realistic obsession - missed opportunity (Isabella) in Rohmer's film, this film adds a discursive element of control - conformity (two parallel pairs of subterfuges). Those who succeed are light and subtle, those who fail are strong and straightforward, and apparent conformity requires a hidden control, another form of self-referential life story from the director. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member (Wrong poster here. Anywaz.) I don't like any character of this one. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Catching up on films Whilst I was off sick Lovely little French film Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member A Charming piece of Cinema... Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member I didn't see the other three films but it wasn't hard to pick up the tale. A very interesting tale of match making for the middle aged played very well.
