A criminally overlooked gem from master filmmaker Eric Rohmer.

Over the course of four episodes, two young women-one from the city, the other from the country-meet and bond over an exquisite atmospheric event, and then room together in Paris, where they encounter many of the inevitable characters of a modern city: the impossible waiter, the metro station hustler, and the snooty gallery owner. Rohmer embues them with his special brand of magic, making them remarkably compelling and unforgettable.

"The deep lure of his work is the suggestion that it is possible to be as articulate or as witty or even as extravagantly morose as a Rohmer character, to stumble across those undramatic moments of perfect grace on some beach or in some meadow."Caryn James, NY Times

"Lolita meets Jane Eyre in Rohmer's [quartet of] stories of the manners and morality of precocious mamselles."Washington Post

Rohmer made 4 ADVENTURES "while waiting to finish his masterpiece LE RAYON VERT. And guess what—it's just as great."Time Out New York
