Let down by a boyfriend and horrified at the idea of a summer stuck in Paris, secretary Delphine (Marie Rivière) tries to salvage her holiday by joining friends or travelling solo around France. But things never feel quite right; can no-one alleviate her sense of solitude? From this simple premise Rohmer conjures both a wondrously detailed portrait of a sensitive, slightly picky individual in need of a break and a surprisingly suspenseful slice of everyday realism laced with intriguing ideas about love, hope, chance, free will and faith. Fiction and actuality are seamlessly interwoven to create a geographical, intellectual and emotional odyssey of rare honesty and quietly miraculous humanity. A masterpiece.
