Eric Rohmer's final film is an extraordinary pastoral fantasy set in fifth Century Gaul, based on a novel by Honoré d'Urfé. When the shepherd Céladon is mistakenly accused of infidelity and abandoned by his beloved, the beautiful Astrea, he throws himself into a river in despair. A remorseful Astrea is consumed by grief, little knowing that Céladon was actually rescued and nursed back to health by a nymph and her cohorts. But Céladon promised Astrea he would stay away from her forever - how can he reunite with his love without disobeying her?
