Le genou de Claire

Éric Rohmer Francja, 1970

Jake Cole's rating of the film Claire's Knee

A brilliantly complex tale of an engaged man being encouraged by an old flame to woo a young girl. Far more morally dense than My Night at Maud's, with even richer character sketches. Rohmer's ability to deepen and pervert the POV shot continues to thrill me.
