It is only when art is in our possession and had the opportunity to live with it, that we truly are able to appreciate it and create our own interpretation on it. When going to the museum or gallery to observe art, no matter what form it is, the connection with it is never as deep as the ones who made it or have been in the presence of it during all their lives. This film helped me open my eyes to that and how truly important art is in a familial level.The film also explores the idea that children would eventually grow up and have their own lives and responsibilities, which would then affect their ability to spend more time with their parents, and I found this to be truly heartbreaking because I have seen things like this happen in families, and it is not that the child doesn't want to go back and visit or help but it's because they have others who depend on them which would tie them down, no matter how much their love for the parents are. It's even more heartbreaking because I know within myself that this would be inevitable, and that my responsibilities would be elsewhere. Sometimes it's not about children sending money to their parents in order for them to get by, but it's the warmth of company that they want, to be with them just before they pass.The film's cinematography and music cues were great, truly making the film's motionless story and low amount of elevated tension seem interesting. Just scenes of chatter between the siblings were fun to watch, and the camera captures it in a way that has the audience feel as emotionally charged and involved as the characters.The film's acting was marvellous, featuring strong performances from all of its leads. Edith Scob was only in the film roughly around 20-25 minutes but she stole the show with each moment she was in, she was able to project this sense of understanding that tragedy would come to her very soon and she was able to show so much of herself and her perspective of her children during a scene where she sits alone with the blue light from the moon gazing upon her. Charles Berling as Frederic was the film's main protagonist after Edith Scob's character passes away, and he does a great job in carrying the film's emotional core. He was able to give many shades of the character, experience a range of emotions after his mother's death, and he delivers this in ways that doesn't feel contrived. Juliette Binoche as Adrienne was also great to watch here but since her character isn't as focused as Berling's character then she does come out in the end as a bit overshadowed. This wouldn't be the film I would go to in telling others of her wonderful talent as an actress, I would instead use films like Blue and Certified Copy. Jeremie Renier was also pleasing to watch but like Binoche his role was a bit overshadowed and felt more like a support in elevating the performances of the other actors in the scene.Summer Hours is a near perfect film that explores art and family in an effective way. It was able to let me reflect on my own personal feelings about family and how my vision of my future would impact the people around me, particularly my parents and sibling. This is definitely something I could see myself coming back to time and time again in the future.

Christopher S (jp) wrote: A decent film but not very believable. Good work as always by the great Morgan Freeman but Ashley Judd in a UCMJ case? I don't think so. I have never seen a civilian represent a service member in a UCMJ court. Is it possible? I am sure it is but give me a break. Jim Caviezel was excellent as Ron Chapman/Tom Kubik, especially when his true nature finally gets revealed at the end of the film. The subplots with Ashley Judd's Claire Kubik's relationship to her sister (Amanda Peet) took away from the film more than it added. While Carl Franklin is a solid director, this film was not one of his finest works. Good ending and good pace, but the acting in the film was not good. Worth seeing if you are a Morgan Freeman fan.

Boss B (it) wrote: I watch a lot of indie horror and sci fi films and was very impressed by this film! Director Oklahoma Ward builds a ton of claustrophobic suspense and dread in this dynamite movie! A majority of the film takes place in narrow tunnels, as our heroine, Tank tries to escort the last remaining fertile female to safety through a series of ever narrower tunnels while being pursued by an insect-like creature. Nicole Alanso is fantastic in the role of Tank, and though there is not a ton of dialog, she conveys the feelings of her predicament. I highly recommend this for fans of The Cube and Absentia. Can't wait to see what they come up with next!
