Jean-Louis (Jean-Louis Trintignant), an engineer in his early thirties, is a devout Catholic. Living by a strict moral code, he immerses himself in mathematics and the philosophy of Blaise Pascal. Spotting the delicate, beautiful Françoise at Mass, he vows to make her his wife. But when Jean-Louis is snowed in at the apartment of a bold divorcée named Maud (Françoise Fabian), his rigid ethics are severely challenged.

The brilliantly accomplished centrepiece of Eric Rohmer’s Six Moral Tales series, My Night with Maud is a witty, subtle, alluring deconstruction of religious morals and modern sexual chemistry, carried by brilliant central performances by Trintignant and Fabian. One of Rohmer’s greatest films, and a playful, alternative Christmas classic.
