The last of Rohmer's Six Moral Tales. Frederic leads a bourgeois life; he is a partner in a small Paris office and is happily married to Helene, a teacher expecting her second child. In the afternoons, Frederic daydreams about other women, but has no intention of taking any action. One day, Chloe, who had been a mistress of an old friend, begins dropping by his office. They meet as friends, irregularly in the afternoons, till eventually Chloe decides to seduce Frederic, causing him a moral dilemma.

Comments

Well, I think the producers of the Fox-Lorber edition should be held accountable for this absolute mess they released. It is one of the worst DVDs I own. I love the film, but the image quality is as hazy as one could imagine - burned in subs and crackling sound. Although the Arrow Films is a definite improvement - it is not without its flaws too. It has a greenish tinge to it that permeates the entire production. RE: the aspect ratio, the director of photography, Nestor Almendros, states that (1.33:1) is correct. The Arrow Films DVD is obviously the one to get. It has Veronique et son cancre and a trailer as an Extra and removable English subtitles as well as a much improved image.
