My Night at Maud’s (Ma nuit chez Maud)

  • Dir: Eric Rohmer

  • France, 1969, French, 110min, DCP, English subtitles

  • Cast: Jean-Louis Trintignant, Françoise Fabian, Marie-Christine Barrault

The title My Night at Maud’s promises a first-person account: an introverted Catholic engineer (who else but Jean-Louis Trintignant?) recounts his interactions with a timid churchgoer he hopes to marry and a sexy, freethinking divorcee on whose bed he has slept – nothing really happens on that night, but underneath is a microscopic examination of attitudes, values and moral choices exchanged through subtle gestures and expressions. One of Rohmer’s most popular and biggest critical successes – a luminous, erotic and unerringly witty meditation on romantic and religious (in-)decisions.
