RohmerCast presented by Oeuvre Busters!



Season 6, Ep. 2

Welcome to the second episode of season two of RohmerCast, the podcast about Éric Rohmer: his films, his working methods, and anything else we want to talk about related to Éric Rohmer.

In this episode, we discuss Perceval, his period adaptation of a 12th century poem. This leads to the following tangents: authenticity to period art and the language of the text, realistic (awkward) battles, theater in the round, artificiality in mise-en-scene, Bressonian acting, and the theme of youth and figuring yourself out.

At the time of release, this movie can be streamed on Tubi @tubi.
