the storyteller of the cinema
Aïdée Caillot, Gianpaolo Pagni
We speak of it!
Here is a fine documentary work for the young which succeeds in the skillful challenge of producing a short, dense, accessible book. The very sober illustration sometimes plays with the symbolic.
The simple text, written by a faithful « Rohmerian », retraces the career of this cinema lover who has left his mark on the French 7th art well beyond the « New Wave ». This title received the « interesting » distinction.

Effective little synthesis. It is a fine dedication. It is a safe bet that the books of this collection will bring the same pleasure, the same emotion.
In this little collection (little by format and number of pages but ambitious by the topics covered) of mini biographies, Aïdée Caillot, being familiar with the man and his work, presents to us Eric Rohmer. (…) An introduction agreeably spaced out with original black and white illustrations by Gianpaolo Pagni, in a style that reminds of single-panel comics and plays a lot on symbols.
