Ma nuit chez Maud

Éric Rohmer Frankreich, 1969

ASHES IN THE HOURGLASS's rating of the film Meine Nacht bei Maud

Maud may just be my favorite female character in any film. She reminds me of Socrates, as she taunts others into revealing information about themselves that they themselves are unaware of. In short, she knows that she knows nothing. The result is a critical comedy about those who hide behind contradictory actions and beliefs. In general, this is one of the best dialogue driven film I have ever seen.
