Synopsis (en anglais; synopsis en francais ci-dessous )

http://www.sffs.org/e...

Gorgeous and sun-kissed, the young shepherd Celadon and the beautiful Astrea are ill-fated lovers, their romance torn asunder by a sudden misunderstanding. An attempt at suicide lands Celadon in the clutches of the sensual Galathea and her handmaidens but a helpful passerby soon gives our hero an idea to reenter Astrea's life and heart. Filled with nymphs, druids and angels, the film is literally atwitter with the sounds of medieval times. Lutes, crickets and waterfalls dominate and aflutter with its more sensual sights, including countless breezes caressing the billowing shirts of our hero, heroine and sundry nubile lasses. Like all things old becoming new again, this ancient tale embodies Rohmer's very contemporary themes, presenting its mélange of romantic befuddlement, entanglement and desire as effortlessly and entertainingly as any modern romance. Deliciously anachronistic, this sweet-natured idyll is the great director's farewell to a lifetime of star-crossed, verbose and ever-so-lovely lovers.

Synopsis (en francais)

http://www.allocine.f...

Dans une forêt merveilleuse, au temps des druides, le berger Céladon et la bergère Astrée s'aiment d'amour pur. Trompée par un prétendant, Astrée congédie Céladon qui, de désespoir, se jette dans une rivière. Elle le croit mort, mais il est secrètement sauvé par des nymphes.
Fidèle à sa promesse de ne pas réapparaître aux yeux de sa belle, Céladon devra surmonter les épreuver pour briser la malédiction. Fou d'amour et de désespoir, convoité par les nymphes, entouré de rivaux, contraint de se déguiser en femme pour côtoyer celle qu'il aime, saura-t-il se faire reconnaître sans briser son serment?
