Eric Rohmer

Eric Rohmer 1920 – 2010

One of my favorite French directors died this week. If you are not acquainted with his work these are some of my choices. I love the beautiful and human French country stories named after the seasons.

He was a French Film director , film critic, journalist, novelist, screenwriter, and teacher. A really important figure in the post-war New Wave , he was a former editor of influential French film journal Cahiers du Cinema

Rohmer was the last of the first Nouvelle Vague directors to get established. He worked as the editor of the Cahiers du Cinema periodical from 1957 to 1963, while most of his Cahiers colleagues, among them Jean Luc Godard and Francois Truffaut were beginning their careers and gaining international attention.
