Six Moral Tales [Criterion Collection] [Blu-ray] [3 Discs]
Having owned Eric Rohmer's SIX MORAL TALES when it was first released through Criterion, I was eager to upgrade my collection to Blu-ray.
All six remarkable films are erotic and sexy, are contemporary and modern for cinema of the 1960-70's. They are daring in nature, yet philosophically liberating, yet unbiased.
Each film deals directly with a succession of encounters of men who are emotionally fragile in nature and the women who deliriously tempt them.
The films are character studies set against seasonal landscapes are imaginative vivid.
All I can say is watching all six film masterpieces of the personal human experiences are breathtakingly original, yet lasting in the viewers memory.
I must congratulate Criterion for preserving these multifaceted personal and deepl moving works in one incredible cinema collection.
