Chloe in the Afternoon ★★★ L'Amour l'Apres-midi 1972 (R)

A married man finds himself inexplicably drawn to an ungainly young woman. Sixth of the “Moral Tales” series is typical of director Rohmer's talky approach. Not for all tastes, but rewarding for those who are drawn to this sort of thing. In French with English subtitles. 97m/C VHS, DVD .
