A Sunday in the Country

We were saddened to learn of the passing of legendary French director Bertrand Tavernier this week. We had hoped to recommend his wonderful 1986 jazz film Round Midnight tonight but it is sadly not available on any streaming service at the moment. So we dug into his filmography and chose his 1984 film A SUNDAY IN THE COUNTRY instead. This celebrated French film explores family dynamics in a clan on the eve of World War I. Monsieur Ladmiral (Louis Ducreux) is an elderly, widowed painter who lives on a rambling estate outside Paris. During a visit from his son, Gonzague (Michel Aumont), Ladmiral hints that Gonzague is too complacent in life and wishes that his son was more like his free-spirited daughter Irene (Sabine Azéma). Ladmiral wants to be freer, too. When Irene joins them, tensions among the family members rise. In his four star review Roger Ebert wrote "[A] graceful and delicate story about the hidden currents in a family." A SUNDY IN THE COUNTRY is streaming on Kanopy and the Criterion Channel.
