PARIS — A production company says French filmmaker Eric Rohmer — internationally known for movies tracing the intricacies of romantic relationships — has died. He was 89 years old.

Les Films du Losange, a company that produced his movies, says Rohmer died in Paris on Monday. The cause of death was not immediately known.

Rohmer’s best-known films included “My Night at Maud’s” and “Claire’s Knee.”

He had worked until recently, with his latest film, “Les amours d’Astree et de Celadon,” (“Romance of Astree and Celadon”), appearing in 2007.

Rohmer debuted in cinema in the early 1950s, making dozens of films.

In 2001, he was awarded a Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival for his body of work.
