About this book

Eric Rohmer was a key figure in French New Wave cinema. Contributors to this volume revisit, complicate, and upend accepted readings and interpretations of perennial Rohmerian topics including the important role of language in his films, the influence of the arts, depictions of gender and class, and the roles played by space and place in his films.

Reviews

"The Films of Eric Rohmer investigates anew the productive relationships between history, philosophy, gender, and genre within Rohmer's long and fascinating career. Furthermore, this important collection offers a wealth of insightful perspectives on the rich and complicated legacies of Rohmer's essays and films and their momentous place within French film culture." - Richard Neupert, author of A History of the French New Wave Cinema

"The book's catholic approach is appropriate to a filmmaker whose own religious persuasions shaped his work and responses to them . . . Anderst's collection offers an elegant range of perspectives from which to view Rohmer's work." - Sight&Sound
