"Damned be this state of affairs!" What a treat this is -- a brief, wry meander over a barbed tightrope from banality to beauty and back again.
Haha this one really came together in the last 10 minutes. Nothing like Bergman though. More like Jasný.
An absolute peach of a film. Reminds me of Renoir's A Day in the Country.
So excited to revisit this: http://www.criterion.com/films/27852-capricious-summer
Like a Blier film mixed with Rohmer...talky, meandering and detailed. A good one.
It was like watching a film directed by Ingmar Bergman, I mean if he'd had a great sense of humour. Recommended,
Not as endearing for me as Closely Watched Trains, but still enjoyable. The color film and lighting choices made the cast's makeup look pretty bad in many of the scenes, I will say.
