Full Moon in Paris (French: Les Nuits de la pleine lune) is a 1984 French film directed and written by Éric Rohmer.[1] The film stars Pascale Ogier, Tchéky Karyo and Fabrice Luchini.[1] The score is by Elli et Jacno.[1]

Full Moon in Paris was Rohmer's fourth installment in his Comedies and Proverbs series. The story opens with the proverb "Qui a deux femmes perd son âme, qui a deux maisons perd sa raison" ("He who has two women loses his soul. He who has two houses loses his mind.")[2]


Louise lives in Marne-la-Vallée, the Parisian suburbs, with Rémi, but still wants to hold on to the freedom of her single life, so she sets up a second home as a pied-à-terre in the centre of Paris.
