The Collector (Rohmer, 1966): BFI Southbank, NFT1, 8.50pm
This film is part of the Eric Rohmer season at BFI Southbank and also screens on 10 January. Full details here.
Chicago Reader review:
The fourth episode of Eric Rohmer's “Six Moral Tales” series (actually
the third in order of shooting, and the first of feature length).
Haydee, the “collector” of the title, is a young woman who hoards sexual
experiences, though she refuses to sleep with either of the two stuffy
males with whom she shares a villa. Rohmer's impossibly light, graceful
way of posing profound moral questions hasn't yet wholly coalesced,
though this 1966 film does have his soft, slow rhythm. With Patrick
Bauchau and Daniel Pommerulle.
Here is the trailer.
