The Aviator's Wife ★★★★★

Strange to learn that in a previous life the idyllic Parc des Buttes Chaumont was a barren gallows and sewage dump, and that boyish lead actor Phillipe Marlaud (who, as François, becomes a kind of drowsy Phillip Marlow) died in a tragic accident shortly after the film's release.

At this point probably my favourite Rohmer, and the scene in which François and Lucy haphazardly spy upon another couple in the park my favourite meet cute, even if it ends up (thankfully!) unrealised.
