A title and a film to cherish. The fifth in Rohmer’s series of six Moral Tales, Claire’s Knee covers a month of full summer at Lake Annecy in the French Alps. Away from his rather severe-looking fiancée, a 35 year-old diplomat (Jean-Claude Brialy) encounters a female Romanian novelist friend (played by the writer herself, Aurora Cornu), who encourages him to flirt with an amiable teenage girl... read more
View all Claire's Knee reviews
Part of Eric Rohmer's "Six Moral Tales" series, this French film tells the story of Jerome (Jean-Claude Brialy), a cultural attaché enjoying his last holiday before getting married, and his peculiar fetish with a teenage girl. Jerome grows obsessed with Claire but fights his urges by permitting himself the singular pleasure of touching her knee. Rohmer likes his erotica spiced with talky foreplay, and Claire's Knee is no exception.

" Since I had never seen an Eric Rohmer film before, I decided to watch this because I'm a pretentious pseudo intellectual. What I got in return was a psychological abortion. Jean-Claude Brialy plays the most amazing middle aged pervert weirdo of a man I've ever seen. He is a short and skinny little homme with a beard larger than him, but we are supposed to believe he is a playa who has fucked many hoes. He continually tries to bang teen girls throughout the film, and it is embarassingly crin"
