The Romance of Astrea and Celadon

Veteran auteur Eric Rohmer's magical and extraordinary final film is a pastoral fantasy set in 5th century Gaul, based on a 17th century novel by Honore d'Urfe. When the shepherd Celadone (Andy Gillet) is mistakenly accused of infidelity and abandoned by his beloved, the beautiful Astrea (Stephanie Crayencour), he throws himself into a river in despair. A remorseful Astrea is consumed by grief, little knowing that Celadon was actually rescued and nursed back to health by a nymph and her cohorts. But Celadon promised Astrea he would stay away from her forever - how can he reunite with his love without disobeying her?
