Movie: "Summer Hours" (in French with English subtitles)

Seventy-five year old Helene has beencaring for the house, furniture, and artwork of her uncle who may also have been her lover. After Helene's death her three children have to decide what to do with the house and possessions. The son who lives in France feels the most attachment to the estate, but can't afford to buy out his brother and sister's share. His brother and sister live in China and the United States respectively, and aren't interested in owning a house in France that they would use only occasionally. The grandchildren feel little attachment to the possessions, but they do have fond memories of happy times with their grandmother at her home.

My rating: ****(out of5)
