A Summer's Tale: Cinematheque/L'­Albatros

Eric Rohmer's 1996 French comedy had it's first theatrical release in the USA just this year.  It is a big hit in NYC and, thanks to the Cinematheque, we get to see it too!  

Rotten Tomatoes: 93%

"Astute, unhurried and gently amusing, it will be welcomed by the director's fans while serving as a fine introduction for those who know him not."-- Kevin Turan, LA Times.

7:00PM MOVIE at Cinematheque

Meet us in the lobby ahead of time, look for us in the theater, or catch up with us near the outer doors after the film.

9:00PM FOOD/DISCUSSION at L'Albatros

We will just take a short walk there.

11401 Bellflower Rd, Cleveland, OH 44106


 A recent university graduate (Melvil Poupaud) vacationing on the Brittany coast becomes involved with two young local women while waiting for his sort-of girlfriend to join him. Part 3 of Rohmer’s “Tales of the Four Seasons” has a 93% “fresh” rating on “The sunniest and funniest of Rohmer’s seasonal tales...Wonderfully witty...As suspenseful and manipulative as a classical farce.” –Time Out London.

    The conversations between the characters and the depiction of romantic love was interesting. However, the characters did not resonate with me …(and for most of the group that saw it last night). Perhaps, the director’s goal was to keep the audience at an objective distance. So, overall, I am on the fence in regards to the film and this director. Good dinner and conversation at L’Albatros.

    Does anybody know where you can park in this area?

      Chrisan-the entrance and free parking is in the back of the Cleveland Institute of Art building. The building is located on East Blvd.
