RohmerCast: The Four Adventures of Reinette and Mirabelle
Welcome to RohmerCast, the podcast about Rohmer: his films, his working methods, and anything else we want to talk about related to Éric Rohmer.
In our second episode, hosts Liam Billingham and Shaun Seneviratne discuss Four Adventures of Reinette and Mirabelle (1987), a semi-improvised film made during a production break on The Green Ray (1986). This leads to following tangents: production crews, the difference between improvisation and scripted moments, episodic construction, naïveté vs popular common sense, how we watch things, compression vs expansion, and what we can learn about our own personal philosophies.
Listen wherever you listen to podcasts!
Special thanks to our buddy George Fragopoulos, who you'll hear on the show soon!
