May 22, 2009 - Boston.com - Wesley Morris, Globe Staff

Olivier Assayas's "Summer Hours" features three adult siblings, several long conversations about whether to sell their family's sprawling country house, and one plastic grocery bag containing the plaster pieces of an Edgar Degas sculpture. The movie is full of quiet and sadness. And I'll confess that I miss the irreverence, absurdity, and manic ambition of Assayas's recent work - 2002's "Demonlover" and 2007's "Boarding Gate" - uncouth as some of it was.

Lackluster

I love juliet binoche but this about as drawn out as they come. As much as a wanted to and as hard as tired, I couldnt get into it.

Nothing much

There is more poetry, drama and humor in the first 10 minutes of "Up" than in all of this film. Unless, of course, you really care about what they do with that armoire...
