Reviews

Among the late Rohmer s finest films, the fourth in the Moral Tales series tells the story of a chaste and conservative thirty-something (Jean-Louis Trintignant, Three Colours Red) who unwittingly spends the night at the apartment of the worldly and spirited divorcée Maud (Françoise Fabian), throwing the moral certainties of his life into question.

My Night With Maud is one of the great 60s films, possibly the greatest to come out of France in an amazing decade ... It is remarkably satisfying, both for its performances and structure. Everything seems so conscious on the part of the director - starting with its silent opening sequences when there is so much talk during most of the film. From that point on it brings everything into focus in an extraordinary way, achieving a balance between the human and the geographical, even the architectural (it gives a very precise sense of the streets of Clermont Ferrand) that is most striking. This mirrors the shifts between different types of discourse, from the formal liturgical texts and sermons heard in church to philosophical debate in a domestic context, emotional narrative, and playfulness. These are present in the main character's encounters with two women (the performance by Jean-Louis Trintignant is perfectly judged), which form two blocks of time in the film. After the very long night scene of the title, what is also striking is the difference in tone when he meets Francoise (Barrault). I have never felt this so strongly in a film, going from one encounter and having to get used to the quite different landscape of another ... Yet the two women, beautifully played by Francoise Fabian and Marie-Christine Barrault, gradually seem to become more alike as we see more of them. Each somehow has quite a lot of the character traits of her opposite, in a way that is endlessly fascinating and true to life. There are also intriguing parallels that seem like visual clues, such as the fact they both have two nude drawings on display, and also a painting of a child's head, possibly by Picasso in both cases (definitely in the case of one). Yet their interior space otherwise has a quite different feel.Read more ›

'My Night With Maud' is now, at last, out on UK DVD after only being available on Region 1 for years and years. That was a shame, because it's well worth a look - there aren't many comparable films around. Eric Rohmer, who died recently, is well known (and often divides opinion) as a director who made films heavily reliant on conversations between characters and subtle interplay between them, without much in the way of outward action. There are no car chases, guns or explosions in this film. I have to be honest - I love his work, but some of my friends find him dull as ditchwater. This is an early example of his style - you are likely to be either engrossed and won over or plain bored!

Being one of the Six Moral Tales series made in the late 60s, this film is basically about a thirty-something man who has to choose between two women - a mysterious pretty stranger in the street, and a friend of a friend, the sexy Maud, with whom he spends a night while stranded by snow, unable to get home. Trintignant, in the lead role, plays the hesitant man brilliantly. It's also fun watching him here, much earlier in his career, if you remember him in Kieslowski's Three Colours Red' as the retired judge, made twenty five years after Maud.

Most of the film is concerned with discussions between the main characters, which take in personal beliefs, religion (Pascal's Wager), philosophy, and so on. In this regard, I suppose, 'My Night With Maud' is quite old fashioned, but it's also great viewing if you like great dialogue and films which tackle big philosophical ideas. Let's face it, there aren't all that many of these around....

The black and white photography in and around Clermont Ferrand in central France is eye catching and looks sharp on this new DVD release.

A key French film from the 60s, this is worth (just under) a couple of hours or any true film fan's time. Highly recommended.

If you love the French New Wave sub-genre then you will love this. Full of style and sensuous undertone that is simply unbelievable
