Audience Reviews for Chronicle of a Summer

Paris 1960 - Jean Rouch and Edgar Morin just made one of the most fascinated documentary of all time. As some might call it Cinema verite or Direct Cinema, the directors are not afraid to establish a certain atmosphere where the social actors can speak freely and naturally to create spontaneity. Highly recommend this film for documentary lovers out there!
