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.

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.

" 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"
