*French New Wave director Eric Rohmer dies*

 

Tue, 12 Jan 2010

 

 

 

 

*Eric Rohmer, a leading filmmaker of the French New Wave cinema whose films explored love and intimacy with stark realism, has died in Paris at the age of 89.*

 

He emerged in the 1960s and was active as a key member of the French New Wave. He worked with Jean-Luc Godard and Francois Truffaut, who are main figures of the genre in France.

 

 

The films he made under the rubric Six Moral Tales between 1962 and 1972 brought international prominence.

 

 

The French director mostly known for My Night at Maud's and Claire's Knee was internationally known for his films' long, philosophical conversations.

 

 

Rohmer's most recent film, the 17th-century costume tale Romance of Astree and Celadon, was released in 2007.

His movies may move at a slow pace but from a psychological standpoint there really is a lot happening. His Six Moral Tales are pretty good.
