Four Adventures of Reinette and Mirabelle (French: Quatre aventures de Reinette et Mirabelle) is a 1987 French film directed by Éric Rohmer, starring Joëlle Miquel, Jessica Forde and Philippe Laudenbach.


The film consists of four episodes in the relationship of two young women: Reinette, a country girl, and Mirabelle, a Parisian. The first episode is entitled The Blue Hour and recounts their meeting. The second centers on a café and a difficult waiter. In the third, the girls discuss their differing views on society's margins: beggars, thieves and swindlers. In the fourth episode, Reinette and Mirabelle succeed in selling one of Reinette's paintings to an art dealer while Reinette pretends to be mute and Mirabelle, acting as if she does not know Reinette, does all the talking.
