Ma nuit chez Maud (1969)

France 110m, B&W
Director: Éric Rohmer; Cast: Jean-Louis Trintignant, Françoise Fabian, Marie-Christine Barrault, Antoine Vitez

ma-nuit-chez-maudMy Night at Maud’s is a pretentious drama about Jean-Louis, an aging bachelor who debates the logic of believing in God with Vidal, an old Marxist friend who introduces him to a beautiful and intellectually challenging woman named Maud. Barely resisting her considerable attempts to seduce him, Jean-Louis remains occupied with thoughts of a young blonde woman who he has declared his love for, but has yet to meet. As the relationships of the characters are eventually revealed in the film’s final scene, the otherwise superfluous dialogue becomes increasingly meaningful as we see Jean-Louis hedging his bets with a good Catholic girl (Klaus Ming April 2016).
