Released in France in 1996, Eric Rohmer’s A Summer’s Tale never received a U.S. theatrical release… until now.

No word on whether A Tale Of Springtime, A Tale Of Winter and Autumn Tale, the other three movies in the series, will get a new releases from Big World Pictures. Do stay tuned.
In A Summer’s Tale, Gaspard, a recent university graduate, arrives at the seaside in Bretagne for three weeks’ vacation before starting a new job. He’s hoping his sort-of girlfriend, the fickle L√©na, will join him there; but as the days pass, he welcomes the interest of Margot, a student of ethnology working as a waitress for the summer. Things start to get complicated when the spoken-for Margot encourages Gaspard to have a summer romance with her friend, Sol√®ne, and he complies. When L√©na turns up, and scheduling complications abound, Gaspard will have to make a choice.
Director Eric Rohmer died in 2010 at the age of 89, in France.
