The Marquise of O (Rohmer, 1976): Close-Up Cinema, 7.30pm

This screening is part of the Rohmer season at Close-Up Cinema. Full details here.

Chicago Reader review:
Eric Rohmer's detailed, infinitely subtle 1976 retelling of a Heinrich von Kleist story about an Italian aristocrat who discovers, unaccountably, that she's pregnant. Rohmer deals with grand passions—love and hate, dignity and humility, forgiveness and contrition—but in an understated way that makes the emotion seem that much more true. The film's slow, stately pace and the quiet way in which it makes its points give it the aura of a neoclassical dream, a fading vision of the virtue of gentility. With Edith Clever and Bruno Ganz.
