L'Heure d'été

Summer Hours

(France, 2008, 103 minutes)

After their mother dies, three siblings have to decide what to do with the country estate where she lived and with the extensive art collection that belonged to their great-uncle and that she kept. Moving but uneven family drama that runs out of breath in the final stretch.
