Rene Gilson

Un été à Paris (A Summer in Paris)

90' - 1987 - Drama - Dialogue: French
Director: Rene Gilson With: Diane Delor, Pierre Semmler, Maud Rayer
On one of the bridges of the Ile-Saint-Louis in the heat of PAris, street singers grind their organ and sing a pretty love song, “Putting dreams and blue skies into lovers’ hearts.” Delighted, Pierre lingers there and even waltzes with a blond girl who is there too. Do You think he ought to go back to painting in his workshop? But doesn’t he have the right to dream and stroll around Paris? What do you make of that? Well, René Gilson has just made a film of it, which makes 6 and a half films to his credit. Keep the good work! He describes his film, Un été à Paris as “romantic and sentimental” in it are two prestigious guest stars, songs by Charles Trénet, and Paris. Paris here is the Paris all the world dreams of, in her beautiful reality beside a magnificent river from the Ile Saint Louis to the Pont des Arts with three detours across the most beautiful squares of Paris and a stroll or two along the banks of the Seine. Like every self-respecting romantic film, Un été à Paris is a love story whose heroes are a pretty young Parisienne, Clara, and Pierre, a German painter who came in Paris 15 years before and forgot to go back.
