Eric Rohmer ends his cycle of "Six Moral Tales" with this delightful film starring Bernard Verley as Frederic, a happily married man who discovers that he can't stop looking at beautiful women. As he says in a voiceover, "I feel marriage closes me in, cloisters me, and I want to escape." His escape comes to him in the form of Chloe (Zouzou), a woman from his past. Chloe had left for America as a successful model but has now returned to Paris, bored with her life and saddled with a man she doesn't love. Although Frederic is reluctant to see her at first, they agree to meet in the afternoons -- just to talk. He feels a freedom with her that he doesn't experience with anyone else because they have, he thinks, no commitments to each other. So, they talk of their problems and their relationships and, before long, Frederic finds that he is becoming increasingly attracted to her. ~ Paul Brenner, All Movie Guide

Yak, yak, yak, yak by Sujata August 18, 2006 - 2:13 PM PDT

If you want to watch a group of utterly colorless people yak on endlessly about what they think, what they feel, what they think they feel, what they feel they... you get the point, then get this movie, and start watching at any random point. It doesn't really matter where. Better yet, find a coffee shop, sit next to a group of hipsters, and eavesdrop. Same experience. The only redeeming feature is some great shots of Paris, but they only serve to accentuate the utter tedium of the rest of the movie. This is one movie that is best watched on the radio.

Movies I've Never Seen.
A list of many great movies that I've yet to see, a couple that I've already seen, and some not so great ones. Everything that's on my queue - watch them with me!
Highly Recommended.
