MA NUIT CHEZ MAUD—screening at Cinefamily early Saturday evening—is the third of Rohmer’s Moral Tales, but was shot fourth, while the director waited for Jean-Louis Trintignant’s schedule to clear.
“MA NUIT CHEZ MAUD is about love, being a Roman Catholic, body language and the games people play. It is just about the best movie I’ve seen on all four subjects. It is also a refreshingly intelligent movie: not that it’s ideological or academic (far from it) but that it is thoughtful, and reveals a deep knowledge of human nature.” — Roger Ebert, 1970
This presentation of Rohmer’s Moral Tales is part of Cinefamily’s La Collectionneuse series, programmed by Kalyane Lévy.
