This time Eric Rohmer turned to politics. We got here the problem of a not too orthodox socialist mayor of a small town who wants to build there a recreative-cultural center somewhat megalomaniac to which his main adversary the local teacher, is firmly opposed in the name of the rural environment. This leads us through discussions and lively dialogues and journalist interviews of several people to the vexed confrontation town-countryside and rurality-urbanization everything treated with the simplicity and naturalness to which Rohmer has accustomed us to when he deals with important human or social problems. Besides that it's also a movie where old questions are debated such as political partisanship at the local level with its not always clear and limpid paths. A curious movie, simultaneously serious and amusing.
