Late August, Early September (Fin août, début septembre)

The story of a quartet of Parisian adults (young and not so young) grappling with love, indecision, and crises of confidence, is not titled for a time of year but for a feeling, a tone, and a sense of passage. The quirky Assayas beautifully captures a portrait in messy emotions and contradictions with modesty and sympathy.

French New Wave cinema movement of the early 1960's revolutionized film, film theory and the style of contemporary movies. Presented in conjunction with the A Tale of Two Cities exhibition.
