Eric Rohmer was born to Jean-Marie Maurice Schérer in 1920 in Tulle, a provincial backwater in south-western France, halfway between Bordeaux and Clermont-Ferrand. This chapter presents a full career overview of Rohmer. It focuses on production history and reception in the mainstream French press. The chapter provides reliable information and a convenient framework for grasping what is an extensive, but by no means unmanageable, body of work. By showing healthy disdain for the industry's starsystem, Rohmer has styled himself as a fiercely independent creator, a cinéaste du dimanche, or Sunday filmmaker, whose energies are entirely given to the pleasures of creation, as distinguished from the pursuit of public recognition. His features have garnered half a dozen major prizes at European festivals, but not one has been nominated for a César, the chief distinction awarded by the French motion picture industry.
