A Summer's Tale (2014)
Critic Consensus: With A Summer's Tale, Eric Rohmer continues his "Tales of the Four Seasons" in typically Rohmeresque fashion -- and for cineastes, that's excellent news indeed.

Critic Reviews for A Summer's Tale
A Summer's Tale is one of those movies where it looks like nothing is happening ...
There's a purity to the experience of watching a film so naturalistic, like living in someone else's life for two hours.
The best films leave space for viewers to interpret the action. Here Rohmer insists on it.
This is a movie of high innocence, set at a time in life when romantic love is still a frolic and the seaside is a balm that quells all ills.
Audience Reviews for A Summer's Tale
Eerily reminds us of how lost most of us were in our true salad days. Very old fashioned flick and plot...could be 50, 60s, 70s, ...cassettes the only giveaway! Enjoyable but painful to watch young Gaspard blow with the wind and reveal a that he has yet to develop a sense of self. Only one of the women in the love quad is worth his attention, but he is too unformed to figure it out...audience certainly has.
The moral of the tale is to love the one you're with, 'cause in the end, she's the one you're meant to be with, and the one you will miss most when the summer's over... Rohmer is one of my favorite all time directors. His works are literary, almost better read in subtitles then understood in the original French.
