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. The film was a trend-setter that resonated with all of the major directors that were part of the movement. The BFI's presentation of Chronicle of a Summer is as impressive as Criterion's presentation of the film. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

  • Summary: Rouch and Morin provided a degree of access to “real” people that had rarely, if ever, been associated with a trip to the theater before.

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. Recently restored in 2K by Cineteca di Bologna, the film looks excellent on Blu-ray.

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.
