Format: DVD
Exactly what was wanted: a nicely put together Artificial Eye DVD box set - six films on five discs - bringing together all of the "Moral Tales" series - the films that made Eric Rohmer's reputation & arguably the best films of his long career.

After the unfortunate false start of his debut ("Le Signe du Lion") Rohmer found his trademark style with the first Moral Tales "Girl at Monceau Bakery" & "Suzanne's Career" - 2 short 1963 films together on disc 1 of this box set. These are both freewheeling new wave fun - showing what you can do on a zero budget with some black & white film stock and a Paris street as a film set. Both films are coming of age stories (told by voiceover) about young men encountering women & love.
"My Night at Maud's" is probably Rohmer's masterpiece - a black & white film largely consisting of the protagonists sitting in Maud's bedroom talking about religion, politics, philosophy, love and sex (and mathematics!). A much richer film than it might at first appear, extremely accomplished with beautiful cinematography from Nestor Almendros & fantastic acting (especially from Trintignant in a demanding role).

In lovely 60s colour "La Collectioneuse" (1966) is my personal favourite & it's great to have it on DVD at last. Two young nihilistic bohemians spend their vacation at a summer house in the south of France, but find a girl already staying there. Various power & sexual mind-games ensue & in the end it is the girl who turns out to be the "liberated" one. At the same time that Godard was filming young Parisian Maoists in "La Chinoise", Rohmer was filming the Parisian dandy hedonists in a similarly ambivalent (satirical?) way.

Great collection of Rohmer's masterworks...excellent prints to treasure for years.
My Night at Maud's is the stand-out film in the series but the others are excellent.
