Eric Rohmer's reputation was established with his ambitious Moral Tales series of films, each based around a common theme - in his words: 'a man meeting a woman at the very moment when he is about to commit himself to someone else'.

The Girl At The Monceau Bakery (1962)
Barbet Schroeder plays a young man whose affections are divided between two beautiful girls - one he meets on the street and another who works in a local bakery - but finds himself faced with the dilemma of choosing between them.

Suzanne's Career (1963)
In Rohmer’s tale of adolescent naiveté, Bertrand, a shy and reserved student, finds himself consumed with jealousy and resentment as he observes his roguishly confident best friend Guillaume exploit the generosity of the sweetly seductive Suzanne.

La Collectionneuse (1967)
Left to his own devices when his fiancée goes to London, Adrien decides to spend his vacation experimenting with monastic life in the peace and quiet of a large house in St Tropez. However, the villa already has two occupants: his artist friend Daniel and Haydée, a woman he does not know. Haydée collects lovers and comes home at all hours of the night, disturbing Adrien’s ascetic pursuits, yet despite his resistance, Adrien finds himself beginning to surrender to her charms. The third in the Moral Tales series.

My Night At Maud's (1969)
The film that propelled Rohmer to international acclaim remains one of the finest achievements of his career. The fourth in the Moral Tales series, it tells the story of a chaste and conservative thirty-something who sees a woman that he believes will be his perfect match whilst attending church. But when he unwittingly spends the night at the apartment of the worldly and spirited divorcée Maud, he finds the moral certainties of his life are suddenly thrown into question.

Claire's Knee (1970)
The fifth in the Moral Tales series takes a witty look at a man's singular obsession with a much younger woman. Whilst minding a friend’s country estate, Jérôme, recently engaged to his long-term partner, encounters sixteen year-old Laura and a flirtation begins until Jerôme’s roving eye is completely taken by the arrival of her step-sister Claire, whose unaffected sensuality completely bewitches him.

Love In The Afternoon (1972)
In the last of Rohmer's Six Moral Tales we focus on business executive Frederic, who leads a happily married life with wife Helene and enjoys his job as a partner in a small Paris office. He spends his afternoons dreaming of other women, but that's all it ever is - dreaming. Until one day, a mistress of an old friend begins dropping by his office. They begin to meet quite irregularly during the afternoons, until she decides she wants to seduce him, which leaves Frederic with a serious moral dilemma...

A Serious Man (DVD): Joel Coen, Ethan Coen A Serious Man (DVD)

R112 Discovery Miles 1 120 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Imaginatively exploring questions of faith, familial responsibility, delinquent behavior, dental phenomena, academia, mortality, and Judaism – and intersections thereof – A Serious Man is the new film from Academy Award-winning writer/directors Joel and Ethan Coen.

A Serious Man is the story of an ordinary man’s search for clarity in a universe where Jefferson Airplane is on the radio and F-Troop is on TV. It is 1967, and Larry Gopnik, a physics professor at a quiet Midwestern university, has just been informed by his wife Judith that she is leaving him. She has fallen in love with one of his more pompous acquaintances, Sy Ableman, who seems to her a more substantial person than the feckless Larry.

Larry’s unemployable brother Arthur is sleeping on the couch, his son Danny is a discipline problem and a shirker at Hebrew school, and his daughter Sarah is filching money from his wallet in order to save up for a nose job.

While his wife and Sy Ableman blithely make new domestic arrangements, and his brother becomes more and more of a burden, an anonymous hostile letter-writer is trying to sabotage Larry’s chances for tenure at the university. Also, a graduate student seems to be trying to bribe him for a passing grade while at the same time threatening to sue him for defamation. Plus, the beautiful woman next door torments him by sunbathing nude.

Struggling for equilibrium, can anyone help him cope with his afflictions and become a righteous person – a mensch – a serious man?

JEAN DE FLORETTE is the first of two parts of the classic Marcel Pagnol story set in southeast France in the mid 1920s. In a small Provençal village, where water is scarce and the earth dry, only one piece of property possesses an underground spring to irrigate the soil--and the wily, greedy César (Yves Montand) will do anything to get hold of it. His dreams seem on the verge of coming true when the owner (with a little help from César) dies unexpectedly. But then Jean Cadoret (Gerard Depardieu), an outsider who inherits the farm, arrives with the intention of settling down and cultivating the land with his good-hearted wife, Aimee (played by Depardieu's real wife, Elisabeth Depardieu), and his young daughter, Manon (Ernestine Mazurowna). Jean, a hunchback and sensitive dreamer, glories in his new life while César and his nephew Ugolin (Daniel Auteuil) secretly decide to stop up the spring so his plans will fail. The good-hearted Jean, too naive to imagine that anyone would sabotage him, struggles fruitlessly to make his garden bloom. His continual failure erodes his spirit, setting the stage for a tragedy with consequences for all. Director Claude Berri focuses a well-trained eye on the heart-stopping scenery of the rural Provençal landscape in this beautifully filmed tragedy, establishing a farmer's reverence for his land and native soil. Gerard Depardieu delivers an unforgettable performance as the failed dreamer. MANON OF THE SPRING: This sequel to 1986's JEAN DE FLORETTE stars Emmanuelle Béart as Manon (the daughter of JEAN DE FLORETTE's protagonist). Manon has grown up to become a beautiful woman, a shy and resourceful shepherdess who lives in relative seclusion from the townspeople of her Provençal village, haunted by the tragic death of her father (played by Gerard Depardieu in part one). An outsider like her father, Manon stays high up in the rugged hills, preferring the company of her sheep to her nearby neighbors César (Yves Montand) and Ugolin (Daniel Auteuil). One fateful day, Manon discovers the real reason why her father's spring ran dry and comes up with a powerful revenge to exact on the men responsible for her father's downfall. Manon's action changes her life forever and uncovers long-hidden family secrets that powerfully affect the local villagers. This charming and poignant fable, based on Marcel Pagnol's classic story, is a richly filmed tale of a small triumph over tragedy. Emmanuelle Béart's beauty radiates throughout the film; she delivers a subtle and captivating performance. Once again, director Claude Berri films with a sensitive eye for the wild beauty of the French countryside that perfectly complements the seductive and earthy beauty of its nubile young star.

Gerard Depardieu
R211 Discovery Miles 2 110 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Regarded as one of director Bertrand Blier's greatest achievements, Buffet Froid is also amongst contemporary French cinema’s darkest and most original black comedies.

Alphonse Tram discovers his casual subway acquaintance dead with Alphonse's penknife sticking out of his belly. When he tries to report the crime to his neighbour, a police inspector, the latter refuses to listen. Later, Alphonse's wife is killed, and her hapless murderer confesses to Alphonse, but neither Alphonse nor the police inspector seem shocked. Instead, the crime acts as a catalyst for the trio to embark on a series of subversive adventures.

A stylish, nocturnal blend of Buñuellian satire and crime thriller, Buffet Froid brilliantly skewers the alienating and dehumanizing effects of urban life, and passes comment on a supposedly civilised society. Blier’s third collaboration with Depardieu, whose personality the director cites as the film’s inspiration, the ensemble acting is terrific.
