The film was rapturously received as a cinematic equivalent to Jane Austen at the time of its original release.
Claire's Knee is a movie for people who still read good novels, care about good films, and think occasionally.
Comes very close to being a perfect movie of its kind.
The penultimate entry in Eric Rohmer's series of Six Moral Tales, and the loveliest, most crystalline of the lot.
A constellation of flirtations, glances, smiles and fibs pulled together by Rohmer with an exquisite Lubitsch deadpan, his camera as warm as sunlight and cutting like a scalpel
[VIDEO ESSAY] As much a French cultural touchstone as a charming and nuanced picture of desire "Claire's Knee" is Eric Rohmer's best-known film.
Rohmer's playful work is both witty and observant.
Despite their constant chatter, the characters come alive without seeming too intellectual or too removed.
One of Rohmer's greatest expressions of male-female relationships.
The question at the center of this almost Shakespearean comedy is this: Why is it better to listen to our conscience in matters of love, rather than listen to our wayward, faithless heart?
Rohmer somehow makes it work. He creates a feeling for his people, makes their seemingly silly conversations dramatic. His is a movie completely concerned with nuances.
Touching and funny.
Eric Rohmer. I get it, I like his sensibilities, and I think he is an important filmmaker. But "Claire's Knee" is just grueling for me. I found nothing to latch onto. I though the way the characters spoke was the farthest thing from reality. I also don't mind slow films, but this was slow for almost no reason. I know people will jump to disagree with me, but the story, while simple, could have used just a tad bit of flare- at least from the actors. I don't know, nothing about the film struck me as engaging or emotional. I understood the message perfectly fine, but to make it meaningful I needed a touchstone of some sort and it was sorely missing.
Extremely poetic,disturbing to the sense of tripping controversies,aye,we do realize censorship committees the judgmental issue of age difference and there is passion between....almost all in this film.It remains a gem of spiritual liberty though and you better get some immorality lesson.
It was okay. I fell asleep watching it once and had to finish it a different day. It was sorta like a French "Lolita" without the sex, and much less interesting.
