LE BEAU MARIAGE (Eric Rohmer, France, 1982) 7
... or the middle film in Rohmer's trilogy Woman Tries to Set Up Beatrice Romand with a Man. This one is never anything other than delightful and ruefully funny and I've overcome my CLAIRE'S KNEE distaste for Romand, but once you know the premise (within the first 15 minutes -- Romand decides to marry), Rohmer springs no surprises on us. At. All.
Also weird to see Andre Dussollier, whom I primarily recognize as an old man in recent Alain Resnais films, as a young man here and as a (n anti-) romantic co-lead. His speech in his office near the end feels like it would be a masterpiece of lawyerisms if I spoke French.
