Saint Eric and Weather

  • “Some people think Rohmer is in league with the devil. Months before, he had scheduled the exact date for shooting the scene where it snows; that day, right on time, it snowed, and the snow lasted all day long, not just a few minutes.” (Cinematographer Nestos Almendros on filing “My Night at Maude’s.”)
  • “All the effects Rohmer had calculated beforehand occurred like clockwork: the roses planted a year earlier bloomed exactly when we needed them, the cherries ripened and reddened just when they should, Claire (Laurence de Monaghan) arrived at Talloires exactly when she first appears on the screen.” (Nestos Almendros on “Claire’s Knee.”)
