Alternate Title: La Collectionneuse
Director: Éric Rohmer
Duration: 88 mins
Subtitle Language(s): English
A bombastic, womanizing art dealer and his painter friend go to a seventeenth-century villa on the Riviera for a relaxing summer getaway. But their idyll is disturbed by the presence of the bohemian Haydée, accused of being a “collector” of men. Eric Rohmer’s first color film, La collectionneuse pushes Six Moral Tales into new, darker realms while showcasing the clever, delectably ironic battle-of-the-sexes repartee (in a script written by Rohmer and the three main actors) and the effortlessly luscious Nestor Almendros photography that would define the remainder of the series.
