"In many films, people never discuss ideas, whether moral ideas or political ideas. And if those kinds of discussions are in fact introduced, they always ring false. But I think I've managed -- and this is what I'm happiest about with my films as a whole -- I've managed to show people discussing morality, whatever that morality might be, in a completely natural way."

Eric Rohmer, French filmmaker and editor of Cahiers du Cinema, has died at 89
."And while his films could, with often exasperating frequency, leave one hungry for emanations less . . . civilized, there could never be any question of the man's dedication to Cinema, or his place in its wondrous and unsleeping concord."
Some of his films:
My Night at Maud's
A Summer's Tale
Love in the Afternoon
