Movie Reviews

The Best French Film of the Year
MoonLitTree | 04/30/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Late August, Early September is a gem. If you like Rohmer, but need more 'character complexity', this film will satisfy your need for intellectual stimulation, poignancy, and reality.This film is to cinema what Kundera is to literature."
Intriguing and identifiable characters
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Some will say french melodramas are too understated and long winded but i found myself thoroughly enjoying this character-driven gem. Editing is reminescent of Godard with its jump-cut scene transitions and non-static camera movements. If you like slow character-evolving films without the overt freudian-analysis and preaching, go check out the film at a rental before purchasing."
Life as it is
MoonLitTree | USA | 08/30/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

""Late August, Early September" depicts life as it is for two struggling writers trying to proclaim a space in modern literary world while meeting everyday chores of life and relationship. The movie has its own pace of revealing its characters and their interactions from an observatory angle. It also examines one very sensitive, tender yet socially uncomfortable relationship between a teen and a mature writer who just found himself questioning his achievement in his career at forty."
