I love watching romances from different countries and especially French romances. I’m excited to check out this out as it originally premiered in Cannes in 1996.

Big World Pictures is proud to present the US Theatrical release of Eric Rohmer’s A SUMMER’S TALE (Conte d’été). The third entry in the TALES OF THE FOUR SEASONS cycle—and the only one never previously released theatrically in the US—A SUMMER’S TALE will open at Lincoln Plaza Cinemas and IFC Center in New York on June 20, and in Los Angeles at the Laemmle Royal, Playhouse 7 in Pasadena and Town Center in Encino on July 18. A national release will follow.

A SUMMER’S TALE originally premiered in the Un Certain Regard section at Cannes in 1996. Following A TALE OF SPRINGTIME (1990) and A TALE OF WINTER (1992), A SUMMER’S TALE resumed the cycle after THE TREE, THE MAYOR AND THE MEDIATHEQUE (1993) and RENDEZVOUS IN PARIS (1995). AUTUMN TALE (1998) rounded out the series.
