Conte de printemps (A Tale of Springtime) is a 1990 French film directed by Éric Rohmer, starring Anne Teyssèdre, Hugues Quester and Florence Darel. It is the first of Rohmer's Contes des quatre saisons (Tales of the Four Seasons), which also includes A Tale of Winter (1992), A Summer's Tale (1996) and Autumn Tale (1998).
Jeanne (Anne Teyssèdre), a young philosophy teacher, is left without a place to rest for the evening, and goes to a housewarming party, where she meets Natacha, a girl her age who studies to become a pianist. They become friends quickly, whereupon Natacha invites Jeanne to her home, and lets her use the father's bedroom, since he so rarely uses it. The father, Igor (Hugues Quester), stops by the next morning to pick up some clothes, and is surprised by Jeanne, who has just returned from a shower.
