The multifaceted, deeply personal dramatic universe of Eric Rohmer has had an effect on cinema unlike any other. One of the founding critics of the history-making Cahiers du cinma, Rohmer began translating his written manifestos to film in the sixties, standing apart from his new-wave contemporaries, like Franois Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard, with his patented brand of gently existential, hyperarticulate character studies set against vivid seasonal landscapes. This near genre unto itself was establishedwith his audacious and wildly influential series Six Moral Tales. A succession of jousts between fragile men and the women who tempt them, Six Moral Tales unleashed on the film world a new voice, one that was at once sexy, philosophical, modern, daring,nonjudgmental, and liberating.The Bakery Girl of Monceau (1962) A law student (played by producer and future director Barbet Schroeder) with a roving eye and a large appetite stuffs himself full of sugar cookies and pastries all daily in orderto garner the attentions of the pretty brunette who works in the quaint Paris bakery. But is her truly interested, or is she just sweet diversion?Claire's Knee (1970)"Why would I tie myself to one woman if I were interested in others?" says Jrme, even as he plans on marrying a diplomat's daughter by summer's end. Before then, Jrme spends his July at a lakeside boardinghouse nursing crushes on the sixteen-year-old Laura and, more tantalizingly, Laura's long-legged, blonde half sister Claire. Baring her knee on a ladder under a blooming cherry tree, Claire unwittingly instigates Jrme's moral crisis and creates both one of French cinema's most enduring moments and what has become the iconic image of Rohmer's Moral Tales.Suzanne's Ca
