More Rohmer than Godard
22 June 2002 | by maple-2See all my reviews

A simple story of two longtime girl friends and room mates who unknown to each other each meet the same young man in a park on the same day. He uses almost the same pick up line with each woman and spends about 40 minutes at a café wooing each of them. Both women are smitten and both agree to meet him for dinner on one of the following evenings. They are surprised when comparing notes that they both met a Patrick, but then the next day are together when by chance they see him use the same moves on another girl near the park. Nice acting by the women, and classic Rohmer attention to details of the heart.
