Béatrice Romand  in Claire's Knee

Claire's Knee

1970 NR

Part of Eric Rohmer's "Six Moral Tales" series, this French film tells the story of Jerome (Jean-Claude Brialy), a cultural attaché enjoying his last holiday before getting married, and his peculiar fetish with a teenage girl. Jerome grows obsessed with Claire but fights his urges by permitting himself the singular pleasure of touching her knee. Rohmer likes his erotica spiced with talky foreplay, and Claire's Knee is no exception.
