Chronicle of a Summer

High-Def Digest
27 February 2013
  • Conclusion: 'Chronicle of a Summer' is a one-of-a-kind film of its time, one that demands to be seen. Never has a truer portrait of the common people been captured like in this manner. This is truly a day in the life of random people on the street to find out about their lives and thoughts. Criterion did an amazing job with the video and audio presentations and the extras are truly awesome. If you enjoy unusual documentaries, I highly recommend it.
