A single mother (Charlotte Very) has a fling with a chef she meets while on vacation. Five years later, the two have completely lost touch while she raises his child. However, she continues to carry an unwavering torch for him despite the fact that she has two eligible men vying for her affection. A Tale of Winter is the talky, observant, and well realized second entry in Eric Rohmer’s Four Seasons series, although its impulsive main character is reasonably off-putting.
