Summer Hours

Summer Hours ★★★★½

Nothing is sacred and permanent except that which remains of practical use.
Sentiments are better served when objects as well as relationships remain functional.
Assayas has managed to distill this quite beautifully with his lovingly intimate images of a family and an unsentimental view of the death of its matriarch. 
Life just like economics is difficult to predict except that it will continue to create and destroy new objects and memories.
