Capital Celluloid 2015 - Day 7: Wed Jan 7

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.
