DESIRES FOR NOTHING:

As foreboding as “Moral Tales” sounds, these are not the ethical dilemmas of a religious or globalized society. These are the ethical dilemmas of interpersonal relationships.

Rohmer takes “talkies” to another level. Non-diegetic sound is refreshingly minimal (practically nonexistent). Location shooting is gorgeous.

Sensual. Enjoyed this more than La Collectionneuse.
