Eric Rohmer made intellectual films on the canvas of human experience. These are deeply felt and considered stories about the lives of everyday people, which are captivating in their character’s introspection, passion, delusions, mistakes and grace. His moral tales, a collection of films made over a decade between the early 1960s and 1970s, elicits one of the most essential human desires, to love and be loved. Bound in myriad other concerns, and ultimately, choices, the essential is never so simple. Endlessly influential on the filmmakers that followed him, Rohmer is a filmmaker to discover and return to over and over again.
