My Girlfriend's Boyfriend

My Girlfriend's Boyfriend PG rating

Eric Rohmer's story of a woman's guilt-ridden relationship with her friend's lover is the concluding part to his six-film Comedies and Proverbs series.

Romance 1987 104 mins

Director: Eric Rohmer

Overview

New to a recently built suburb, a shy civil servant experiences confusion and guilt when she finds herself attracted to her flighty friend's lover. Inspired in part by Goeth's Elective Affinities, Rohmer makes highly effective use of colour, architecture and space to enhance its wry account of shifting relationships; a walk along a towpath becomes electric with erotic tension.

The final entry in Rohmer's six-film Comedies and Proverbs series makes for a lovely conclusion to a delightful suite.
