About the Movie

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 Léna (Aurélia 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 Solène, Margot's adventurous friend.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: "A Summer's Tale" has room to focus on Rohmer's brilliance at revealing human nature through articulate, multidimensional characters, perfectly cast, who in some ways seem to exist outside of time. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Jun 19, 2014

Fresh: Originally released in 1996 in France (but never before in the U.S.), Eric Rohmer's sun-kissed love quadrangle remains as fresh and romantically profound as it was 18 years ago. – Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly, Jun 20, 2014

Fresh: A Summer's Tale is vintage Eric Rohmer, his most richly satisfying film in a number of outings. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jun 19, 2014

Fresh: Astute, unhurried and gently amusing, it will be welcomed by the director's fans while serving as a fine introduction for those who know him not. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Jul 17, 2014
