The Fashionable Libertine: My Night at Maud's

The third of Éric Rohmer's Six Moral Tales, My Night at Maud's (Ma nuit chez Maud) delves into the moral dilemma faced by a deeply religious Frenchman whose intellect and passions are stirred during an overnight stay with a recently divorced libertine. The film's exceptional cinematography perfectly captures the dead of winter and late-1960's French fashion. Starring Françoise Fabian as Maud and Jean-Louis Trintignant as Jean-Louis.
