    Synopsis

    In Eric Rohmer's classic love quadrangle - released for the first time in a glorious HD restoration - Gaspard (Melvil Poupaud), a recent university graduate, visits seaside Brittany for three weeks' vacation before starting his new job. He's hoping his girlfriend, the fickle Lena (Aurelia Nolin) will join him; but as he waits, he enjoys the interest of Margot (Amanda Langlet, PAULINE AT THE BEACH) and kindles a summer romance with Solene, Margot's adventurous friend.

    "Worth the wait!" –- Stephen Holden, New York Times

    "Sublime! Rohmer has a genius for taking a seemingly mundane situation and slowly tightening the screws... Think of it as a thriller by Hitchcock only with words, not knives, that cut straight to the heart." -” –Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York

    "“A Summer's Tale feels like a great beach read of a movie. …The Rohmer touch consists of nonchalanceand effortless sensuality, not just in the people, but also in the landscape, somehow even in the air... A Summer's Tale makes obvious this director's influence on the epic walk-and-talks and romantic inquisitions of latter-day Richard Linklater …It's a merciful vision, and a vacation we all deserve." - –Jonathan Kiefer, The Village Voice
