“Summer Hours”: Juliette Binoche Returns.

Is there any better big screen actress working today than Juliette Binoche? I’d like to hear your idea of who you think has a better record of great performances… in great films.

Last year, she showed up in Hou Hsiao-Hsien’s Flight of the Red Balloon and astonished me again. This year, it’s Oliver Assayas’ Summer Hours, which a few friends have already highly recommended to me. I can’t wait.

Fans of the Dardennes Brothers should note: Jérémie Renier is in this film as well.

There’s such an easy beauty to the look of these clips that I find myself wanting to go there, recline on some lawn furniture, sip a glass of wine and relax.
