Claire's Knee (1970): Decisions. Decisions. Nymphet Sisters

Jérôme, the 35-year-old protagonist in Claire's Knee (1970) [French: Le genou de Claire], is infatuated with the nymphet Claire and has an insatiable desire to touch her young knee, but it's Laura, Claire's 15-year-old sister, who has fallen in love with Jérôme. 

Laura: "I think I fell a little bit in love with you." 
Jérôme: "... with someone my age." 
Laura: "Age doesn't matter to me. I've never been able to love a boy my age...You know, I may look like a little kid, but appearances can be deceiving. I'm really quite mature for my age."

Thus, Jérôme must decide if he should pursue Claire, his unrequited love and knee fetish, or accept the convincing advances of Laura. Decisions. Decisions.
