Movie Info

In Sunday in the Country, an elderly French impressionist painter who spends a summer day with his adult children and their offspring at his country house. During the course of the day, the painter comes to grips with his children, who never really fulfill his ideals. This leisurely-paced, beautifully photographed character study may move a little slow for some tastes, yet it is a gorgeous and moving tale. Bertrand Tavernier won the Best Director prize at the 1984 Cannes Film Festival.
