É. Rohmer's "CONTE D'ÉTÉ" - french cinema

  • Aug 9, 2014 · 3:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

"Discovering that there's a 1996 movie by Eric Rohmer, the French genius behind classics like “My Night at Maud's” and “Claire's Knee”, that's only now making it into U.S. theaters, is like finding a $20 bill in an old pair of pants. Actually, it's more like a $50 bill, since the movie in question is “A Summer's Tale,” a sprightly entry in his “Tales of the Four Seasons” about a moody mathematician who claims to be inept with women but still winds up with a trio of jeunes filles orbiting around him by the end of his seaside vacation..." Alonso Duralde, TheWrap

This for the special discount price of $6, details available after having RSVP'd otherwise click HERE to request the info.

    This was definitely a film suited for those of us who also like non-conventional non-pop films, and of course for Rohmer's fans particularly when it comes to his play-like scenes with lots of dialogue. Still, it was quite poignant with plenty of subtleties. As for our post meetup, I wish I could've stayed longer to chat with those of you I hadn't met before, next time! But the highlight of this whole meetup for me was that ride trying to find an ice cream place, and our post-post-post-meetu­p at a late night movie (yes another movie!).

      The movie was pretty "French" - lots of dialogue and great symbolic points - which apparently, I'm the only one who noticed (at least from the group members I spoke with). The Part 2 was great - loved the Thai food - drama, drama, drama, Part 3 was great - LOL, who would think the GPS would take us to an old, abandoned area where we would find the ice cream van! UFF! And yes...the part 4 was great - would have been funny if we got locked in the movie theater... HAHA! As always - Thank you, G, for such a wonderful time and arranging and organizing the event! Cheers and Hugs!3

      Hmm, odd... wondering where you're getting that 7:30pm from. Anyway, the suggested meetup time is 3:30pm as stated on the page. Cheers.
