Directed by Eric Rohmer
The film is introduced by and followed by a discussion with Dudley Andrew, the R. Selden Rose Professor of Film and Comparative Literature, Yale University.
A lonely woman on vacation seeks companionship, but despairs when both chance and conversation fail her. The elusive green ray invites the possibility of a fortuitous meeting in this humane comedy affectionately executed by Rohmer.
