I did a search, but we don't appear to have many (any?) specific threads for Rohmer's films, just one large thread for all his films. Anyway, I wrote something about Claire's Knee, which struck me differently than when I first watched it several years ago. I didn't really get into this part of it, but if I have a chief complaint about Rohmer's Six Moral Tales it may be that there is almost too much ambiguity, if that is even possible for me. Maybe it's because I've recently started watching Lost on DVD and have been struck by the show's (and J.J. Abrams's ongoing) conflation of indeterminacy with ambiguity, but there is a very fine line between opacity and obscurity, between hidden or subtle meanings and blank ciphers that allow (and hence invite) you to make of them what you will.
So either I am a particularly poor thread finder (quite possible), or you all went and elected a film as one of your 25 favorites on marriage that did not have a thread of its own. On the off chance that the latter, not the former is the truth of it...here you go! And here's some thoughts I had on watching the film. I think Peter posted a link to this some years ago in the Eyes Wide Shut thread, but I don't know if anyone posted it in connection with Rohmer. Also, while I'm promoting stuff...I recommend John Caruana's excellent essay on Rohmer in F&S in Master's of World Cinema.
