L'heure d'étéDVD - 2009 | French
"How much or how little are we obliged to honour the wishes of our parents after they're gone? This is the question posed by Olivier Assayas in his rueful and wise new film, the most internationally heralded of his career to date. In Summer Hours, the divergent paths of three forty-something siblings collide after their mother, heiress to her uncle's exceptional 19th century art collection, dies suddenly, leaving them to come to terms with themselves and their differences. Adrienne a successful New York designer, Frederic an economist and university professor in Paris, and Jeremie a dynamic businessman in China, are forced to discuss the practical details concerning the collection: preserve or sell? Display, or protect? In doing so they must confront the end of childhood, their shared memories, background and unique vision of the future"--Container.
