RohmerCast presented by Oeuvre Busters!


The Green Ray

Season 6, Ep. 3

Welcome to RohmerCast; the podcast about Eric Rohmer, his films, his working methods, and anything else we want to talk about related to Eric Rohmer.


In our seventh episode we discuss Le rayon vert (The Green Ray), his entirely improvised film from 1986. This leads to the following tangents: summertime sadness, different kinds of holidays, traveling alone, the feeling of a documentary, premiering on television, The Worst Person in the World, personal superstitions, others dictating your life choices, tv interviews as the basis for improvisation, weird titles, poetic ideals, feeling invisible, and White Stripes vs Dashboard Confessional.


At the time of release, you can stream the movie on The Criterion Channel.
