Fresh French comedy inspired by Eric Rohmer's life
16 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

"Maestro" is a delightful "fish out of water" comedy about a young action-loving wannabe actor who succeeds in getting cast by an old brainy director in his bucolic masterpiece. The film is inspired by Nouvelle Vague doyen Eric Rohmer's collaboration with actor Jocelyn Quivrin (who co-wrote the script with Swiss director Léa Fazer) on the film "Les Amours d'Astrée et de Céladon".

"Maestro" plays on the stark contrast between the realities of film production and both our fictional director's conservative methods and our hero's glamorous expectations. But this last one will get a lot more than he bargained for in the end. And I also got more than I expected from this refined but unpretentious comedy, whose style, with its balance of witty dialogue and funny visual gags, reminded me more of Woody Allen's best comedies from the 70s than of Eric Rohmer's work.
