Chloe In The Afternoon

"Weak"

Chloe In The Afternoon Review


The finale of Eric Rohmer's "Moral Tales," a six-part filmed essay on modern morality. Unfortunately, Chloe is distinguished by little more than the tepid non-choice presented by its milquetoast hero (lovely Chloe (Zouzou) tries to seduce the otherwise happily married man) and some of the worst lighting ever to sour a film. Especially a French film. The self-obsessed running commentary of Frédéric (Bernard Verley) isn't so much a bore as it is simply conceited. Oh, and the 1970s fashions are difficult to look at -- even if they're out of focus and hard to make out in the dark.

Aka L'Amour l'après-midi.
