It's a story about a man considering his marriage and having an affair with an old friend who comes into his life. While this could have made for a pretty cookie cutter plot the characters are compelling and there's little of the acting is very good. The dialogue is the key as we get to both see and hear every part of the conflict the main character goes through, up until the really strong ending.

I get the feeling that my appreciation of Rohmer's work could grow considerably in retrospect. Like Mike Leigh or Cassavetes, he appears to be a filmmaker remarkably capable of depicting realistic details of human behavior, but also like them his style is not necessarily what i would consider "cinematic". Yet this is not necessarily always something that stands in the way of greatness, and time will tell whether or not my opinion of his work grows as it did with theirs.

A man grows tired of domesticity and is tempted by an affair with another woman. It sounds cliche, but this is Rohmer, who packs his relatively simple films with such nuance that nothing is typical. The dance of seduction is mesmerizing, constantly taking one step forward and two steps back, building anticipation until the remarkable ending. It's probably the most concise example of the Moral Tales, about assured men who justify and stumble their way through romantic and intellectual crises.

Eric Rohmer's Chloe in the Afternoon doesn't need sparkly cinematic dross to discover unspoken, universal truths about relationships and love through filmmaking.

Pauline Kael: "Will the squeamish, married hero (Verley) break down and go to bed with bohemian Chloé (Zouzou), or won't he? The author-director, Eric Rohmer, a specialist in the eroticism of non-sexual affairs, is a lapidary craftsman who works on a very small scale. This movie is, in its way, just about perfect, but it's minor, and so polished that it practically evaporates a half hour after it's over." I agree with all but the last bit. It's memorable BECAUSE of its "lapidary craftsmanship".

Viewed January 1, 2016. When it comes down to it, movies are mostly wish fulfillment. This is why I like Rohmer's movies. I dress nice, drink a lot of coffee, think a lot and have long thoughtful conversations, but I don't do it with nearly the amount of finesse that populates every frame of Love in the Afternoon. It might be my favorite of the Moral Tales.

Loved the part where Frederic imagines seducing women on the street. Beautiful.

Completely wrapped up in all sorts of honest and intelligent musings on the male gaze, yet avoids melodrama and hysterics, only just getting to that territory by the film's close. Not as vague about its "moral" as the other tales, yet it's conclusion still feels perfect and is the most emotional of the four moral tales I've seen.

The penetrative gaze of the female in Rohmer's work is downright surgical - seeing the sensationalism and the defense of Frederic be dismantled is pure entertainment.

Em honra do centenário de Eric Rohmer filme #3. Sempre tive uma relação ambígua com Rohmer: odiava amá-lo. Ele é um mestre das mise-en-scene e diálogo, mas por vezes eu tinha ojeriza de alguns dos seus personagens, mas é inegável que o tenho como meu segundo favorito da Nouvelle Vague, atrás de Godard e empatado com Rivette. Não pude deixar de pensar esse filme como um anti-Eyes Wide Shut, as semelhanças diferentemente especulares são inegáveis, são filmes irmãos de pais diferen

Eric Rohmer'ın ahlak filmleri, sinema tarihinin en önemli yönetmen serilerinden biri. Kültür, sanat, din, felsefe, matematik ve bilime, kadının ve erkeğin doğasına, topluma, önyargılarımıza, hatta hayatın kendisine yazılmış birer şiir gibi, her biri özel, her biri üzerine çok kez düşünmelik yapımlar. Chloe in the Afternoon ise The Collector ile beraber, izlediklerim arasında beni en çok hislerimden vuran filmler oldu.

For the first half of this movie, I was really down on it. It felt like a very mundane love affair story with just a few unusual New Wave-y flourishes (I liked the daydream about the device that controls will power). But it took me by surprise and in the end I was satisfied. A minor but pleasing moral tale of temptation and fidelity.

Boring visually, wooden staccato acting that adds nothing over reading the words in print, and content with a depth and drama you grow out of at 14.

klişe. bu adam abartıldığının yarısı etmicek bir yönetmen. kusura bakmayın. üçüncü başka bir filmini izlesem "yeteeer" diyip olması gerekenden daha düşük puan veririm. çok seviyorsunuz paris, aşk meşk, kahküllü kadınlar, çapkın erkekler vs li filmleri. aşın şunu artık sinema bu kadar basit değil.

Rohmer saved the best for last. The plot in the last of his six Moral Tales is simple but because the film is so exquisitely written and directed it approaches perfection.

Frédéric: "That's why I love the city. People come into view, then vanish. You don't see them grow old. What makes the streets of Paris so fascinating is the constant yet fleeting presence of women whom I'm almost certain never to see again."

Done with this box set just in time to get it back to the library. A unique, deceptively cinematic directoral vision, clearly, and easily the most -likable- director associated with la nouvelle vague, for me. I guess "Suzanne's Career" ended up being my favorite of these. Not an unworthy selection [a bit redundant, judging my own tastes by the same metric, heh].

Another Rohmer film that has aged like fine wine. His directorial style is a refreshing change from modern Hollywood where exposition and drama needs to be hammered into your head with emotive overacting. Here Rohmer does what he does best and allows his characters to explore their emotions, surroundings, and each other. This is about the living breathing colorful Paris of the 70's as much as it is a story of a man resisting desires outside of his married life.

Eric Rohmer can be so ostensibly good and so excruciatingly boring at the same time. Rohmer's characters always chatter ceaselessly and endlessly about their emotions, seldom taking time off in order to express any. While callous and humorless, the dialogue is usually intelligent, but "Chloe" is rife with lines that seem too contrived for realism, and most of it was extremely tedious to watch. What little drama snuck in toward the end was very welcome.

after watching quite a few of his movies, i can definitely say that rohmer is very consistent, subtle, intelligent and pleasing to watch, but his very understated manner has a tendency toward blandness. i have seen every piece of his direction from criterion's 'six moral tales', so i suppose it's time to branch out a bit. also, my 700th rating!
