Eric Rohmer, RIP

Eric Rohmer has died at the age of 89. Here is the entire trailer, en français, for Le Genou de Claire. How times have changed. The trailer, like the film, is gorgeous, wordy, not exactly pacy, but ever so sensuel.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Attractive, well-to-do French people philosophizing about God and lusting after each other in beautiful settings. I could watch his movies forever.

And here’s a nice detail from the obit:

An admirer of Andre Bresson, his strength was in his capacity to depict human foibles and to capture a sense of time and place. According to his frequent cinematographer, Nestor Almendros, Rohmer visited the locations of “Claire’s Knee” a year before filming and planted roses in scenes that he envisaged.
