4 Adventures of Reinette and Mirabelle
Les Films du Losange is one of France’s most prestigious independent production and distribution companies. Founded in 1962 by Barbet Schroeder and Éric Rohmer, at the height of the New Wave, Les Films du Losange has worked and supported some of the most acclaimed filmmakers from all over the world. This tribute to the company’s fiftieth anniversary will feature brand new 35mm prints of films largely shot on location in Paris by two directors closely associated with Losange—Rohmer—and the man who replaced him at the helm of Cahiers du cinema, Jacques Rivette.
Rohmer’s charming 4 Adventures of Reinette and Mirabelle spans four episodes in which two young women—one a painter from the provinces, the other a worldly Parisian student—meet by chance in the countryside and decide to room together in the capital. Once in Paris, they encounter many of its fixtures: the antagonistic waiter, the metro station hustler, and the snooty gallery owner. Shot, like Rivette's Le Pont du Nord, on 16mm and in situ, the film moves from the elemental (“the blue hour” between day and night) to the existential, all while carefully balancing wit, wisdom, and bittersweet revelations.
