French Film Festival: A Summer’s Tale (Conte d’été)

Sat, Mar 9 / 5 pm
Directed by Éric Rohmer
1996, France, 113 min
French with English subtitles

Gaspard (Melvil Poupaud) is a young, handsome, completely self-absorbed musician holidaying in Brittany. Awaiting the arrival of his not-quite girlfriend Léna — more a “habit of coincidence,” he clarifies — Gaspard begins courting the affections of sweet, smart, ethnology student Margot, and then Margot’s smitten friend.  Léna, of course, shows up, pushing the romancer to choose between his three surprise suitresses.


Alliance Française du Manitoba is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to teaching and promoting French and its diverse culture. For the 5th time, the Alliance Française’s French Film Festival, curated by Damien Ferland and Alan Nobili, will give Winnipeggers the opportunity to see a diverse selection of French feature-length movies.

Reviews

Originally released in 1996 in France (but never before in the U.S.), Eric Rohmer’s sun-kissed love quadrangle remains as fresh and romantically profound as it was 18 years ago.
