Summer Hours

Dir. Olivier Assayas (2008). Olivier Assayas brings it all back home--straight to the heart of a bourgeois French family. Summer Hours opens with a gaggle of cousins romping around the rustic estate where their parents grew up but, as its title suggests, Summer Hours is an evocation of loss—as well as essay on the fate of local (film) culture, exemplifying, as it ponders, France in the age of unstoppable globalization.
