  1. Ryan Swen's rating of the film Chronicle of a Summer

    A continually simmering society.

  2. Aardsy's rating of the film Chronicle of a Summer

    Why do you relate everything to yourself?

  3. James Mackin's rating of the film Chronicle of a Summer

    Too nouvelle vague for me to genuinely enjoy, but the Holocaust survivor bit was nice.

  4. Caitlin's rating of the film Chronicle of a Summer

    Cinema at its finest. I reviewed parts of the film that touch on grief. You can read that review here: http://ekphora.blogspot.com/2016/07/chronicle-of-summer.html

  5. christophel's rating of the film Chronicle of a Summer

    Du vrai cinéma pour délivrer des témoignages passionnants, parfois bouleversants, à partir desquels s'épanouit un essai foisonnant.

  6. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film Chronicle of a Summer

    55 ans après c'est toujours la même chanson (et la différence est que tu n'es plus là) ... La guerre d'Algérie (maintenant c'est la guerre contre l'Etat Islamique) ... L'antisémitisme ... Saint Tropez, le fun, les filles ===== 55 years later and it's still the same old song (and the difference is that you're gone) ... War in Algeria (now it's war against ISIS) ... Anti-Semitism ... Saint Tropez, fun & girls ...

  7. Cinexplorateur's rating of the film Chronicle of a Summer

    Impossible d'écrire un texte de 420 signes qui serait à la hauteur d'un film aussi riche et précieux. Alors peut-être juste cette simple question pour approcher en une phrase le cœur de ce cinéma-vérité: Et vous, est-ce que vous êtes heureux?

  8. Countouriotis's rating of the film Chronicle of a Summer

    On est pris par les personnages, par leur histoire. Un documentaire d'une grande humanité qui nous rend tous ces êtres si proches.

  9. trampoline fantome's rating of the film Chronicle of a Summer

    sincère et intime, le désir et le desarroi de parisiens anonymes suivis le temps de qq semaines dialogues amicaux ou polémiques, toujours directs, regards fuyant ou déterminés dont il naît une vive émotion l'image est belle ce qui ne gache rien pour cet exercice risqué, l'expérience est imparfaite mais livre des instants d'amitiés ou de mal être furtifs que bien des films de fiction cherchent mais ne trouvent pas

  10. mciszczon's rating of the film Chronicle of a Summer

    I felt deeply touched by some of these stories. Many different philosohpies mix in here. As the director states at the end, people in the film were accused for two fings: either that they were too true and open, or they were spurious. How can one be true and spurious at the same time? Watch yourself and decide.

  11. Didonne's rating of the film Chronicle of a Summer

    Formidable témoignage des années 60 ! A conseiller pour la qualité des échanges sur divers sujets, et la façon dont l'exercice de la pensée est chose historique. On y croise une jeune femme brune, sortie de camp de concentration, ayant son numéro tatoué sur le bras. Le temps n'a pas suspendu son vol.

  12. Jacques de Villiers's rating of the film Chronicle of a Summer

    Thankfully the tawdry boom of Reality TV hasn't aged this film, which only grows more relevant with time's passing. It's refreshing to a see a film made with such a rare combination of intelligence and cinematic flair, which brings such universality and warmth to questions of representing and encountering others.

  13. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film Chronicle of a Summer

    A good one. It gets better when the film sticks to a handful of characters and keep visiting them at different stages and let them review themselves after the film is presented. The holocaust survivor really got to me.

  14. Kacey Martin's rating of the film Chronicle of a Summer

    A wonderful film with anthropological and historical value. Like traveling back in time; a glimpse into the lives of unknowns of a foreign past-time. Particularly interesting to me were the topics of race, decency/indecency, and the existential questions of happiness and meaning in life. The characters were intriguing and this to me represents the notion of every person having depth, seen or unseen.

  17. Aube James's rating of the film Chronicle of a Summer

    At the center of this study about Communications is a Parisian focus group. By asking them questions i.e. "Are you happy?" we learn if they'd open up or not, and why so? Filmakers also ponder about the limits of their study's authenticity, including their personal biases. Great food for thought, points of view, and conversations. Time well spent.

  18. Daunay's rating of the film Chronicle of a Summer

    Documentaire sur le mechanisme humain très interessent

  19. captainfez's rating of the film Chronicle of a Summer

    They wanted it to be about love: they captured indifference.

  20. kiras's rating of the film Chronicle of a Summer

  21. FISCHER's rating of the film Chronicle of a Summer

    On ne peut qu'approuver cette association entre un brillant sociologue (Edgar Morin) et un spécialiste du cinéma documentaire (Jean Rouch) pour nous donner un aperçu, certes orienté et parcellaire, sur la façon de vivre et de penser de quelques quidams dans la France de l'année 1960. www.cinefiches.com

  22. Le temps perdu's rating of the film Chronicle of a Summer

    Not easy to watch, sometimes a bit boring, but as a whole quite interesting. The interviews with Mary Lou are very impressing and I liked the end of the film (almost postmodern).

  23. Julius GL's rating of the film Chronicle of a Summer

    Interesting people, wonderful cinematography, a masterpeace. It's so unusual and rich to access deep inside people's mind ! Thank you Edgar, Jean and Mubi !

  24. Julian Horny's rating of the film Chronicle of a Summer

    One of the most essential documentary of the history of cinema.
