Over the course of four episodes, two young women - one from the city, the other from the country - meet and bond over an exquiste atmospheric event. They, then, room together in Paris, where they encounter many of the inevitable charaters of a modern city; the impossible waiter, the metro station hustler, and the snooty gallery owner. Rohmer imbues them with his special brand of magic, making them remarkably compelling and unforgettable.

Eric Rohmer discovered a process of filmmaking he was pleased with while shooting Summer (The Green Ray); namely, shooting with a skeletal crew and allowing for his actors and location to dictate the direction of the story. He went into 4 Adventures of Reinette and Mirabelle with the same process and the result is charming. If you liked other Rohmer films, you'll allow yourself to be swept along by this film's laid-back, near plotless atmosphere and lengthy dialogues. Like the plays of Chekhov, nothing epic "happens" plot wise and the two characters don't grow or change or experience catharsis, but there is delight and comedy to be found in the behaviour of the characters. They go from wandering around the countryside to wandering around the city of Paris, and the manner in which they meet, dance, argue, moralise, steal, panic, and eventually cooperate are memorable, real and relatable.
