La Collectionneuse Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

La Collectionneuse is the third of director [[Performer~P108731~Eric Rohmer~ericrohmer]]'s "Six contes moraux" (six moral tales), and also the first of the series to attain full feature-length status (each of the first two entries, [[Feature~V137037~La Boulangere de Monceau~laboulangeredemonceau]] and [[Feature~V137049~La Carriere de la Suzanne~lacarrieredesuzanne]], ran less than one hour). [[Performer~P4592~Patrick Bauchau~patrickbauchau]] plays a self-centered young man on summer holiday in the Mediterranean. He finds himself irresistibly attracted to Haydee ([[Performer~P123417~Haydee Politoff~haydeepolitoff]],) the aloof young woman who shares his St. Tropez villa. Haydee is a sexual libertine, a "collector of men" (hence the film's title), but she appears disinterested in Patrick. For his part, the hero assumes that the girl's promiscuity is deliberately calculated to prompt him to seduce her. Filmed in 1967, [[Feature~V133005~La Collectioneuse~thecollection]] was released in the US in 1971, by which time the fourth of [[Performer~P108731~Rohmer~ericrohmer]]'s Six Moral Tales, [[Feature~V34102~My Night at Maud's~mynightatmauds]] (69), had already debuted in America. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
