(aka "An Unforgettable Summer" )

 

directed by Lucian Pintilie
France / Romania 1994

 

We chose the film AN UNFORGETTABLE SUMMER, which was described by one of the festival staff as "one of the jewels of the festival." AN UNFORGETTABLE SUMMER is an historical piece about a Romanian army captain and his wife in the 1920s. In order to protect his wife from the advances of his commanding officer, the captain, a staff officer at the time, requests a transfer, and is transferred to a bleak border post in the Romanian east. He and his wife adapt, but they eventually find themselves in a situation where the moral solution is the onethat will destroy them. The film shows how two decent, honest people can find themselves in a no-win situation. The film is presented on a small scale and, ironically, is told through the eyes of the young son, who simply remembers this as "an unforgettable summer," possibly the best summer he ever had. I'd say that this is one of the four best things we saw.

Comments A solid DVD form MK2. Sharp image and the colors seems mostly accurate, even though I wonder if the greenish look is intended, and whether it is from the original color timing. Some brief aliasing can also be found, but overall this is a very good looking DVD. The both soundtrack's have some lines in English, when the character played by Kristin Scott Thomas speaks with her children. The extra material is not subtitled in English.

NOTE!
I can't find one single web site that confirms, that the DVD they sell has English subtitles, not even MK2's Home page! It feels odd that so many French DVD vendors has so little information of the disc options. I don't think there can be two versions of these DVD, when the English subs are stated on the Menu page!
