The Romance of Astrea and Celadon

Year- 2007
Director- Éric Rohmer
Running Time- 1 hr, 49 mins
Rated- MA

Adapted from a novel by Honoré d’Urfé, Eric Rohmer’s final film goes all the way back to the fifth century, and continues his enduring and endearing exploration of attraction and courtship. Young shepherds, Astrea and Celadon are deeply in love, yet their romance is threatened by the feud of their families. As dedication is challenged by hedonistic temptation on both sides, the lovers’ hearts will be tested.

Rohmer’s bucolic lovers relish discourse with the same enthusiasm as his urban intellectuals. Ripe with sensuality and playfulness, _The Romance of Astrea and Celadon _bears the innocence of a medieval tale, involving mischievous and kind-hearted mythological figures in a liberated idyllic setting. This ode to purity is also a nod to the magic of cinema for its power of imagining and realising the youthful and romantic spirit.
