Ce sentiment de l'été

Mikhaël Hers France, 2015

Cláudio Martins da Silva Alves's rating of the film This Summer Feeling

Borrowing heavily from Rohmer, it’s a delicate portrait of loss, grief and its ramifications in the life of those who suffer them. It avoids most of the usual modern indie's fragilities through a surprising maturity in its humanist observation. Even if some might find little to appreciate in its story, it works at a purely formal level as a study in the textures of light and color through a naturalistic lensing.
