Summer Hours

Just in case you hadn't worked it out it's Film Festival time again, and Summer Hours was festival film number five and sadly one of the least memorable. It's a fairly gentle French film about three siblings dealing with their mother's death and the settling of her estate which consists of the house they all grew up in and its contents - some quite valuable art and some rare art deco furniture. And that's about it......each of the siblings has different attitudes to the situation and to the items to be disposed of but there are really no great insights to be gained from watching, no new things to ponder, no superb performances, no stunning scenery. It was all perfectly pleasant and I didn't suffer but there's really not much to say.

Anne's rating 2.5/5
