Alliance Francaise film festival feature ‘Summer Hours’ is for general release in April  



L’heure d’ete
tells the story of three 40-something siblings dealing with the death of their mother and disappearance of their childhood memories, as they make difficult decisions about what to do with her valuable estate. It opened to great acclaim in France in March 2008 and is one of the highlights of the current French Film festival season here. Starring Juliette Binoche as a successful New York designer, the movie questions how much we are obliged to honour the wishes of our parents after they are gone.
The film is officially released in most states 2 April.


Reviews include:

**** "Deftly played and beautifully photographed… its observations on human transience are deeply moving"
David Parkinson, EMPIRE

**** "Beautiful! Reminds us gently and persuasively of the films of the great Renoir."
Derek Malcolm, THE EVENING STANDARD

"Such generosity of spirit… so beautifully performed, intelligently written and fluently directed"
Geoff Andrew, TIME OUT LONDON

"A gloriously astute movie… one of the year's real gems."
Tim Robey, THE TELEGRAPH (UK)
