Le Bel été 1914
AKA: 1914 the Glorious Summer
Summer in Paris suburbs. The last glorious summer before a war. There, on the hills, amongst virgin woods stands a castle whose aristocratic owner is now impoverished. He tries to save his family estate from being totally ruined and turned into a sanatorium for tuberculosis victims by renting out part of his huge, empty manor to tenants from the capital who have come to enjoy their vacation here. Though it would seem to be the easiest solution, fate so decrees that things sad and strange start to happen. Passion, love, and jealousy find their way into the quiet lives of the manor's inhabitants.

Robinson Stevenin comes of age. He plays Gabriel (12) when he really is at least 14. His play is convincing enough though. The plot is rather messy. A great many intrigues from Louis Aragon's novel 'Les voyageurs de l'impériale' were crammed into the script. Part of it is probably autobiographic. Director Christian de Chalonge is to be praised for his effort. The kitchen/bathroom is a recurring theme that will raise eyebrows, some in disbelief, others in anticipation.
It was nice to notice that Quantum took care of the subs.My Movie Rating: 8 / 10
