“The movie is, in its way, just about perfect,” stated Kael of the capper in Rohmer’s “Moral Tales” sextet of films, which also wrapped the writer/director’s first run of U.S. art-house successes. It Girl-turned-actress Zouzou shimmers as a footloose woman turning the head of lawyer Bernard Verley (of Buñuel’s films); the latter’s wife Françoise Verley plays his onscreen spouse. The daytime assignations are gorgeously lensed by the great cinematographer Néstor Almendros.
