A Summer’s Tale / Aug 8, 9, 10

July 18, 2014 - August 3, 2014

MAGICAL! — Los Angeles Times

July 18 – August 3 French filmmaker Eric Rohmer’s 1995 romantic comedy has never been released in the States – until now. And it shows the legendary writer/director at his effervescent best…. Gaspard a recent university graduate, arrives at the seaside in Bretagne for a three week vacation before starting a new job. He’s hoping his sort-of girlfriend, the fickle Lena, will join him there; but as the days pass, he welcomes the interest of Margot, a student of ethnology working as a waitress for the summer.

Whether it’s the closest you’ll get to the beach this year, or you have to tear yourself away from the dunes to enjoy it, it’s an essential part of any movie-lover’s summer. –The Wrap

A Summer’s Tale feels like a great beach read of a movie. The Rohmer touch consists of nonchalance and effortless sensuality, not just in the people, but also in the landscape, somehow even in the air. –The Village Voice

The thoughts may not be profound, but they are profoundly true to life,and the writer-director’s approach to young people’s concerns is remarkably universal and timeless. –Variety

A Summer’s Tale has room to focus on Rohmer’s brilliance at revealing human nature through articulate, multidimensional characters, perfectly cast, who in some ways seem to exist outside of time. –NY Times

Eric Rohmer has a genius for taking a seemingly mundane situation and slowly tightening the
screws… Think of it as a thriller by Hitchcock–a Rohmer favorite—only with words, not knives, that
cut straight to the heart.”
–Time Out New York

The sunniest and funniest of Rohmer’s seasonal tales…wonderfully witty…Rohmer provides insights aplenty into matters of love, friendship, fidelity, loneliness, luck, destiny and desire.
–Variety
