RIP Eric Rohmer

A fascinating man and filmmaker has passed away. One of the founding members of the French New Wave, Eric Rohmer is best known for his Six Moral Tales. The role of preservation becomes even more important as we begin to lose members of one of the most important eras in film history. Tonight I think I'll watch a film of his I've never seen.

  2. I like Rohmers work, however his films have been dismissed as "Parisians fretting about their holidays".I think there is some truth in that!
