  1. mahdis's rating of the film Summer Hours

  2. lbunuel's rating of the film Summer Hours

    I like Assayas, and the mise-en-scène here is occasionally great, but I just can't enjoy the reactionary, "classy" melancholy of this.

  4. ammar's rating of the film Summer Hours

  5. Adam GR's rating of the film Summer Hours

    Cinéma vérité about a white, upper class French family. Assayas relishes in sense of place. The house party scene was somewhat of a climax. Summery, languid.

  6. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Summer Hours

    There was a time when people didn't disperse far and wide. It happens to friends and family. The family dynamic suffers from it making people isolated. It also benefits from it as well, as distance makes the heart grow fonder.

  8. opandadodavid's rating of the film Summer Hours

    The scene where they are taking the pieces of art from the house is just beautifully crafted. It's so beautiful the simple fact that while the experts are taking the paintings from the wall, Frédéric is turning on the fireplace, making tea, trying to keep the house alive even though Hélène is long gone, just as it will happen with her things soon enough...

  9. Victor Morosoff's rating of the film Summer Hours

  10. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Summer Hours

    Olivier Assayas crafted a mature family drama that is devoid of sentimentality while simultaneously remaining breezy.

  11. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Summer Hours

    Perfect moment of beauty in this film. The old woman walks up the steps to the house after the children have left. That and a couple other scenes make this as good as it is.

  12. rdesnos's rating of the film Summer Hours

  13. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film Summer Hours

    The most rewarding level of this film is the most literal, I think. Though if you want it can be about, like, the loss of national identity in a global age and the sadness of conservative values being lost or, quite literally, being put in museums. Though the only way, in my opinion, to sucessfully romantizice the past is to mourn its passing it's still not the best way to view the film.

  14. Renton47's rating of the film Summer Hours

    Maybe not one of the great works of 21st century art but is surely one of the great works about 20th century art. Specifically its utility + possession. Does it belong to the masses or is it intensely personal? That this is foregrounded as capital while the siblings change countries makes it distinctly Assayas, his camera roving like one of those filmed gallery spaces. Looks like a painting, feels like a novel.

  15. Jérémy Poirier's rating of the film Summer Hours

    Such a beautiful film. A sweet and poignant story about family, legacy and time. It is superbly written, acted and gorgeously shot. Just the film I needed right now. I have so much love for Olivier Assayas.

  16. FISCHER's rating of the film Summer Hours

    Une œuvre particulièrement émouvante et sobre, des qualités et des qualificatifs en général guère caractéristiques du style et de la production du metteur en scène... www.cinefiches.com

  20. Miguel Duarte's rating of the film Summer Hours

  21. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Summer Hours

    The next generation climbs over the garden wall in search of a new garden... but they remember.

  22. paxy's rating of the film Summer Hours

  23. Mister Monkeyman's rating of the film Summer Hours

    It's rare to come across a film that refuses to exploit its characters for the sake of a juicier plot. The film is a very restrained and subtle study of what happens to a family when the last of the parents are gone and decisions must be made about the things that they left behind.

  24. Ronja's rating of the film Summer Hours

    the banality of classes, the banality of death, the banality of a predestined life
