A moral tale with strong characterisation - Love in the Afternoon review by Tim from London

Spoiler Alert
01/02/2007

This is the last of Rohmer's Six Moral Tales about a married man (Frederic) attracted to other women who is missing the time when he was free. He meets up with Chloe, a free-spirited friend and they spend afternoons together talking about love and relationships. The main tension of the film is the choice Frederic must make between his passion for Chloe and his love for his wife.

Like most of Rohmer's films the focus is on characters rather than plot. There is lots of talking - but it never seems false or tiresome. It is a charming film with real characters and real moral dilemmas.
