Just finished reading Tortajada, M (2004) Eric Rohmer and the mechanics of seduction. Studies in French Cinema, 4 (3). pp. 229-238. In this paper, she examines a category of seduction, which she calls seduction through ambiguity, by studying Eric Rohmer’s Conte d’automne. In passing, she mentions other methods of seduction which she discusses in her book, Le spectateur s?©duit: le libertinage dans le cin?©ma d’Eric Rohmer et sa fonction dans une th?©orie de la repr?©sentation filmique (1999, Paris, Kime). Pick up caught my eye and, as I was googling for it, I came across this page. Seduction has its own language, literally.
