REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Thu., Sept. 6, 2001

"Love and Morality: The Films of Eric Rohmer" is an eight-film survey of films from the modern era of feminist filmmaking. It kicks off with one of the cerebral master's classics, My Night at Maud's. Belonging to Rohmer's cycle of films called "Six Moral Tales," My Night at Maud's features Trintignant as a devout and uptight Catholic who becomes infatuated with a woman who is quite his opposite. As in all Rohmer's films, the characters discuss the issues involved in continual conversations. For more info on the series, see www.austinfilm.org.
