An example of one of the best educational documentaries from the cycle En profil dans le texte, for which Rohmer prepared his own methodological materials. Using an essayistic format, he uses only samples of various illustrations from the novel Don Quixote to show how society formed its own visual image of this literary work.

“The film is based on extensive research and my interest in knights and their world. There are other themes in the novel that I like, such as one’s approach to life. But mainly I am looking at the aspect of the illustrations influencing our perception of the novel.”  Éric Rohmer
