Critic Reviews for Summertime (La Belle Saison)
Two dull people have a dull love affair in "Summertime," a French drama that drags on like an August afternoon.
What makes Summertime really refreshing is that it doesn't treat its central romance as anything but wholly normal, despite the attitude of other characters, or indeed, the tenor of the time in which it is set.
While the physical contrasts between Ms. de France and Ms. Higelin are striking, the differences of temperament and background that separate their characters rarely feel simplified.
Artfully calculated and authentically felt, the unexpectedly effective "Summertime" combines the conventional structure of classic movie romance with a sensual same-sex frankness that couldn't be more up-to-date.
Audience Reviews for Summertime (La Belle Saison)
An engaging love story that feels so relevant in our times considering that same-sex marriage was a much discussed topic in France only two years before it came out, and it is also a mature film about how we must live with the choices that we make in life but cannot unmake.
