Chronicle of a Summer (1961)

  • Conclusion: Filmmaker-anthropologist Jean Rouch and sociologist Edgar Morin's Chronicle of a Summer is an essential film to see and own. I think that without it the French New Wave movement would have been very, very different.

Chronicle of a Summer (1961)

  • Conclusion: Filmmaker-anthropologist Jean Rouch and sociologist Edgar Morin's Chronicle of a Summer was an inspirational film for the New Wave directors. It is easy to see why. In a way, it is the ultimate cinema verite film, a trend-setter with remarkable depth and, perhaps rather surprisingly, style.

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.
