French Cinema Series:

Summer Hours (L'heure d'été)
(Olivier Assayas, 2008, 103 min, France, Color, 35mm)

Three siblings, played by Juliette Binoche, Charles Berling, and Jérémie Rénier, must decide what to do with the country estate and objects they’ve inherited from their mother. From this simple story, Assayas creates an exquisitely nuanced drama about the material of globalized modern living..

"Hats off to Olivier Assayas's plain yet hauntingly beautiful Summer Hours, a true--albeit nonsecular-- meditation on art and eternal life." - David Edelstein, New York Magazine
