The Green Ray (French: Le Rayon vert) is a 1986 film by Éric Rohmer. It is named for the novel of the same name by Jules Verne. It was shot in France on 16mm film and much of the dialogue is improvised.
The movie opens at the start of Delphine's summer vacation. Her travel companion has ditched her and she mopes around Paris, depressed and self-pitying. Her friends urge her to get out there and meet new people. She visits several locations, but can never seem to find what she wants: happiness and true love. At Biarritz train station she meets a young man who is travelling to Saint-Jean-de-Luz. She goes with him and together they fall in love in front of the warm glow of sunset; and le rayon vert (the Green flash).
The film won the Golden Lion at the 1986 Venice Film Festival.
