About the Movie
A young couple, Félicie and Charles, meet while on holiday and fall deeply in love. In a fatal slip, she gives him the wrong address, and, as a result, he disappears from her life. Five years later, at Christmas time, Félicie is a hairdresser in the Paris suburbs with a daughter (Charles’) and two lovers: the successful Maxence and the intellectual Loïc. She loves them both, but, as she says, “There’s love and love,” and the love that counts is the one she still holds for the long lost Charles.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: At least part of the comic appeal of Mr. Rohmer's work is the complete confidence, clarity and decisiveness with which he dramatizes the utter confusion of his emotionally besieged heroines.
Fresh: As usual, Rohmer works magic with his generally unfamiliar casts, drawing from them more they perhaps realize they're yielding.
Fresh: Rohmer's style, over the years, has become so easy and natural that, at its best, his work never seems like fabricated drama... While this low-budget Tale of Winter may seem simple, it's a masterly simplicity.
Fresh: This winter romance by Rohmer, then in his 70s, demonstrates that faith and art can work miracles.
