Summer (Le Rayon Vert)
France | 1986 | 35mm | 98min | Subtitled
Director: Eric Rohmer
Cast: Marie Rivière, Vincent Gauthier, Amira Chemakhi
A recently jilted young Parisian woman (Rohmer’s co-writer Rivière) takes a solo vacation but is frustrated in every attempt at human connection. The fifth of Rohmer’s “Comedies and Proverbs” cycle is a brilliant and witty character study of an independent but insecure heroine. “The best film of the year . A singularly ennobling episode in the history of cinema."
