ICE-Vision continues with Film Studies and English major Dafna Kaufman’s selections of great films that may be forgotten by the general public, but can be remembered and cherished through viewings today.
Claire’s Knee is a 1970 film by Eric Rohmer. It is the fifth movie in the series of the Six Moral Tales. Roger Ebert wrote, “In a work by Eric Rohmer, small attitudes and gestures can summon up a university of humanity.” Eric Rohmer’s classic french film deals with “self-deception, …cruelty, …a certain kind of arrogance that goes with wisdom, and very much…sex ” (Vincent Canby, New York Times).”
