“In My Night at Maud’s, the brilliantly accomplished centerpiece of the Six Moral Tales series, Jean-Louis Trintignant plays Jean-Louis, one of the great conflicted figures of 1960s cinema. After spotting the delicate Françoise at Mass, he vows to make her his wife, although when he spends an unplanned night at the apartment of the bold divorcée Maud, his rigid standards are challenged.” - The Criterion Collection

Ma nuit chez Maud (1969, Eric Rohmer, 105 min.)


Come discover a Christmas love on film deeper than you thought. The story follows the forbidden love affair between a man bound by religious convictions committed and an independent, sensual woman played by Françoise Fabian, unfolding during a winter night. We follow Jean-Louis’s slice of life and his choices between a well-ordered existence and a passionate entanglement. Nominated for the Palme d’Or at the 1969 Cannes Film Festival, join us for this morally-ambiguous fable beautifully depicted in black and white.

He was shy, but it’s shyness that made Jean-Louis Trintignant an actor valued by the best directors for what he held back rather than what he gave away. He was shy and women loved him. His first wife was the actress Stéphane Audran; his affair with Brigitte Bardot on the set of And God Created Woman directed by Roger Vadim, Bardot’s husband, made him famous. He went on to work with Chabrol, Lelouch, Truffaut, Bertolucci, and be paired with Romy Schneider, Anouk Aimée, Juliette Binoche, Fanny Ardant and many more…He even made a spaghetti western! His other passion was car racing and he survived the Mans 24 hours race. His life had its share of tragedy, losing his first daughter, Pauline, at 10 months, and his other daughter, the actress Marie Trintignant, a victim of domestic violence. He made very few films after this tragedy, one of them the much-awarded Amour, by Michael Haneke.
