At the Arthouse

Non-multiplex flick picks for the week

by

My Night at Maud's

Director Eric Rohmer's 1969 breakthrough has all the elements that would mark his career: uptight guys, free-spirited women, and lots of people talking about some very deep things for a really long time. In My Night at Maud's, a devout Catholic ends up spending the night with Maud, a recently divorced hottie. They don't have sex or anything like that, but they do end up in her bedroom talking about love, religion, and other things French directors get off on. At the Cinematheque at 7:15 p.m. Friday, September 2, and 5:15 p.m. Saturday, September 3. — Michael Gallucci
