    Arrow Academy Releasing Eric Rohmer 100 Comedies And Proverbs

    Coming to Blu-ray in the UK in April.

    Rohmer 100: Celebrating Éric Rohmer's Centenary

    Éric Rohmer enjoyed a remarkable career. Between 1949, when he started work on his first short film, to the release of his final effort, The Romance of Astrea and Celadon, in 2007, Rohmer directed some 28 features, as well as numerous shorts and documentaries, many of them masterpieces.

    The Comedies and Proverbs series brings together six of the Éric Rohmer's best; the first entry in the series, The Aviator's Wife, sees François become obsessed with the idea that his Girlfriend is being unfaithful. A Good Marriage follows Sabine in her pursuit of matrimony with Edmond, who it seems is the only person that doesn't know the two are set to marry. In Pauline at the Beach the titular Pauline and her cousin Marion discover lovers new and old during a summer vacation. Full Moon in Paris centres on Louise who although in a relationship with Remi seeks the freedom of single life. The Green Ray sees Delphine let down by her holiday companion, travelling alone she witnesses a remarkable natural phenomenon. The sixth and final tale in the series, My Girlfriend's Boyfriend, tells the story of new-to-town Blanche and her colleague Léa whose relationships become entangled.

    Complemented by numerous bonus features, this special edition Blu-ray set provides both a welcome opportunity for the newcomer to explore the work of a great director as well as a must-have collection for the die-hard Rohmer fan.
