One season that changed their lives forever...
L’Heure d'été (Summer Hours) is Juliette Binoche’s first film with acclaimed French director Olivier Assayas, who previously contributed to the screenplays of Rendez-vous and Alice et Martin.
The divergent paths of three adult siblings collide when their mother, heiress to her uncle’s exceptional 19th century art collection, dies suddenly.
Left to come to terms with themselves and their differences, Adrienne (Juliette Binoche) a successful New York designer, Frédéric (Charles Berling) an economist and university professor in Paris, and Jérémie (Jérémie Renier) a dynamic businessman in China, confront the end of childhood, their shared memories, background and unique vision of the future as they decide what to do with their mother’s legacy.
Made with the support of the Musee D’Orsay, L’Heure d’été features priceless works of art from the museum as well as the museum itself.
The film was a critical success throughout the world, winning several critics awards following its theatrical run in the US.
