My Night at Maud’s


Two years ago, I challenged myself to come up with twelve films that corresponded with all the verses of the popular Christmas song that Eddie Izzard loves to sing the fifth verse of. Despite ending that sentence with a preposition, I sat down to a quiet Christmas break intending to stay as far away from work as possible, but that became impossible after my third quart of egg nog. For it was after that quart that the Planet of the Apes poster in my office began speaking, nay, taunting me to the challenge of coming up with twelve more films. I only have two words for hallucinatory, two-dimensional Cornelius. Challenge. Accepted.



This week, I take a trip back to the French New Wave. And I do it For Science, discovering the Six Moral Tales of director Eric Rohmer.



Eric Rohmer (1920-2010) was a truly modern cinematic artist with a unique voice, possessing a style that distinguished him from his New Wave contemporaries.
