A Summer's Tale: Éric Rohmer's Lost Portrait of French Society
COMP - $4.50*
Long out of distribution, a gem from the French New Wave's most durable director finally gets to shine when Northwest Film Center screens Éric Rohmer's A Summer's Tale at Whitsell Auditorium. The third installment of his Tales of the Four Seasons cycle, A Summer's Tale offers a vivid and witty scrutiny of French society and adolescent love. While waiting for his girlfriend Lena to join him for a beach vacation, Gaspard attracts the attention of two other young women. Despite lacking the skills -- much less the confidence -- of a great seducer, Gaspard finds himself in a real pickle: he has invited all three women (including Lena) on a side trip to Quessant. Revel in this summery cinematic treat which The Village Voice called a " a great beach read of a movie."
