Shot in the environs of Lake Annecy, Claire’s Knee concerns a cultured, soon-to-be-wed diplomat (Jean-Claude Brialy) who develops a consuming obsession with the knee of an acquaintance’s daughter, a fetish which in Rohmer’s hands takes on the character of an almost religious quest. With the always wonderful Béatrice Romand, making her first appearance in Rohmer’s stock company.
