  1. Rohmer treasures the undervalued glories of discourse and the intimacy of conversation over the obviousness of action or sexual display.
  2. They talk and talk, and somehow it's delightful.
  3. A film which should gratify any audience starved for intelligent dialogue, realistic portrayals of romance and lovely, non-cliched open-air photography.

    Few, if any, films this year will approach, let alone equal, Autumn Tale in its subtle sparkle.
  5. 100
    Rohmer elegantly seduces us with people who have all of the alarming unpredictability of life.
  6. 91
    The acting is so persuasive as to be transparent.
  7. A movie that dares you to slow down and enjoy the subtleties of life.
  8. With deft and subtle performances and an uncomplicated but savvy script, Autumn Tale gets to the inner lives of its characters.
  9. 80
    If the carefully planted romantic intrigue is serenely slow to ripen, the process is never less than intriguing.

    Rohmer's trademark as poetic in its plainness as ever.

    Will be remembered as a vintage Rohmer harvest.
  12. As sublimely warming an experience as the autumn sun that shines benevolently on the vineyard owned by the film's central character.

    Typically low-key and lovely.
  14. 78
    The summer's best cinematic equivalent to a lazy afternoon in the shade with a cool drink.
  15. One of Rohmer's more engaging slices of life. The acting is impeccable.
  16. An almost documentary reality and voyeuristic appeal.
  17. 75
    It's the talk...and the extraordinarily expressive faces of those who do the talking, that accounts for its engrossing, enchanting powers.
  18. Reviewed by: Phoebe Flowers
    Somewhat lumbering but ultimately rewarding plot.
  19. Reviewed by: Lisa Nesselson
    A typically deftly layered meditation on men, women, friendship and the prospect of romance.
  20. 70
    Exceptionally smart and charming.
  21. The last and best of his "Tales of the Four Seasons."
  22. A quietly interesting but unusually perceptive story about love and relationships.
  23. Reviewed by: Rod Dreher
    Somnolent, draggy but occasionally warm-hearted.
