  1. caddie's rating of the film A Summer's Tale

    A beautiful, naive, artistically delicate story about young adults' summer love and the discovery of self through innocent love affairs.

  3. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film A Summer's Tale

    Rohmer must have been really into astrology because he made a film about a man who doesn’t know what to do with his conflicting emotions, a man who is cowardly and bottled up and improvises/performs wearing his heart on his sleeve. Of course it’s a summer tale. It’s cancer season, baby.

  8. sadie's rating of the film A Summer's Tale

    feels so good when the universe aligns and gives you an actual excuse so you don't have to lie to get out of shit.

  11. Brotherdeacon's rating of the film A Summer's Tale

    The film mostly leaves me cold, but the character of Margot supersedes that reaction.

  14. Catarina Andrade's rating of the film A Summer's Tale

    Rohmer at his funniest but not at his finest. Clever the way he depicts his main character through indecisive dialogue. We can laugh at him, sympathize with him and know that he'll be alright in the end. All in all a perfect summer's tale.

  16. V.S. Luoma-aho's rating of the film A Summer's Tale

    The protagonist is, in the end, a douchebag playing all the possible angles which makes the film a bit harder to like than other Rohmer's tales. Then again, if he wasn't, there wouldn't be a movie and all its permutations. Enjoyable and skillful, but also a bit frustrating, since the protagonist doesn't really evolve & seems to remain shallow. Amanda Langlet is sublime, maybe unfairly so; she askews the quadrangle.

  17. Cependant's rating of the film A Summer's Tale

    Observer d'un oeil de Bretagne les souvenirs maintenant presque oubliés de la jeunesse habituées des saisons d'été. Sensation amer salée et une envie de rire.

  18. Timbo of Boston's rating of the film A Summer's Tale

    Friendship, love, men and women, the head, the heart, the loins, this is like life with the extraneous and the ironic stripped away. Those French lips, downcast gazes, and sensuous performances make me feel like I’ve dreamed his movies. In an age where nearly everything has to be funny, ironic, and full of side plots and pop music, Rohmer is still a deep breath of (ocean) air. You watch with your heart. Riveting.

  19. Zac Weber's rating of the film A Summer's Tale

    A Summer's Tale showcases Rohmer's penchant for using youth to explore the dilemmas of attachment and identity. The film exudes a feeling of optimism, and Amanda Langlet is lovely. The people and locations in Normandy are equally beautiful, and as new experiences, the film contemplates what it takes to "get to know" someone or something.

  20. David R Williams's rating of the film A Summer's Tale

    A film about all the permutations of relationships told through three different pairings - one man and three very different women. It would be nice to think that the male piece of these puzzles is at least slightly wiser at the end but I fear that is not probably not the case. Amanda Langlet shines as Margot.

  21. Max Seqgar's rating of the film A Summer's Tale

    Aaahh! To have the free spirit of the sailor's heart, crashing against the waves of three mermaids!

  22. Trulove1211's rating of the film A Summer's Tale

    The rarest of all films. No romance here. Not really. The film seems to be about the difficult nature of relationships and the limits that stop so much goodness from ever really becoming goodness. This is the story of love. We love, lose and try our best to go on.

  23. Joe Pryweller's rating of the film A Summer's Tale

    Ah, youth. Wanting the freedom of not being tied down or having to choose and also wanting to be adored and be chosen by others. Rohmer's ironic romance picture shows that in love and friendship, commitment is important and so is becoming an adult in a relationship. I love Rohmer's flawed characters, who never seem to understand themselves and make plenty of mistakes, as does Gaspard with the trio of girls.

  24. Dave Corun's rating of the film A Summer's Tale

    Dude, just go with Margot. She's aces. The other girls don't care for you nearly as much.
