âWhy would I tie myself to one woman if I were interested in others?â says JerÃ´me, even as he plans on marrying a diplomatâs daughter by summerâs end. Before then, JerÃ´me spends his July at a lakeside boardinghouse nursing crushes on the sixteen-year-old Laura and, more tantalizingly, Lauraâs long-legged, blonde stepsister, Claire. Baring her knee on a ladder under a blooming cherry tree, Claire unwittingly instigates JerÃ´meâs moral crisis and creates both one of French cinemaâs most enduring moments and what has become the iconic image of Rohmerâs Moral Tales.
