My Night At Maud's
Jun 19 - Jun 25, 2009
(Eric Rohmer, France, 1969, 35mm, 105 min)
In this brilliant centerpiece of Eric Rohmer’s “Moral Tales” series, Jean-Louis Trintignant plays one of the great conflicted figures of 1960s cinema -- a pious Catholic engineer in his early thirties who vows to wed the delicate blonde Françoise only to have his rigid ethical standards challenged when he unwittingly spends the night at the apartment of a bold, brunette divorcée, Maud. Rohmer's first international hit, Maud’s was nominated for Oscars for Foreign Language Film and Original Screenplay.
