My Night with Maud
Ma Nuit chez Maud
Eric Rohmer’s witty, sexy, thought provoking comedy about one man’s romantic temptations.
Dir Eric Rohmer
With Jean-Louis Trintignant, Françoise Fabian, Marie-Christine Barrault
Rohmer’s witty, sexy, thought-provoking comedy about a devoutly Catholic engineer torn between the temptations of two very different women uses its setting – Clermont-Ferrand during the Christmas period – to enhance its exploration of various philosophical questions concerning chance, faith, desire and free will. The first, especially, is embodied in a snowfall that will influence the fateful, faith-testing night of the title.
