There's no middle ground when it comes to Eric Rohmer films. You either love them or you hate them. If you hate them, there's no sense reviewing them for others. For those of us who love them, maybe we should rate the films on the Rohmer Scale of 1 to 5. "1" for your least favourites and "5" for your most favourites.
Having said that, I'd say this is a mid-level Rohmer film. But, still Rohmer, still unexplicably wonderful.

Of course, if you never liked any of Rohmer's film, this one is not for you. But "La Collectionneuse" is an extremely beautiful, subtle and profound movie. Also a funny one, even if you don't laugh... Rohmer could have made only this single film, and yet would be an important and intriguing director.
