Summer in the Forest

Summer in the Forest

Like countless others, Philippe, Michel, Andre and Patrick were labeled 'idiots', locked away and forgotten in violent asylums, until the 1960s, when the young philosopher Jean Vanier took a stand and secured their release - the first time in history that anyone had beaten the system. Together they created L'Arche, a commune at the edge of a beautiful forest near Paris. A quiet revolution was born. Now in his 80s, still at L'Arche and revered by some as a living saint, Jean has discovered something that most of us have forgotten - what it is to be human, to be foolish, and to be happy. SUMMER IN THE FOREST invite us to abandon the rat race and forge new friendships. Amid the ancient trees, Philippe, Patrick, Jean and the others welcome us into their lives. If there are rules to break, they will be broken. And if there is a truth to be told, they will tell it. Michel reveals his war-torn past, Andre is desperate for a date, and young David will prove himself a hero in the fight against the forces of evil.

Randall Wright and his cast have rejuvenated a struggling and boring cinema, they have resurrected the almost dying art of epic film-making.

When I realized who directed this one, I thought, "Oh, no - not Randall Wright!" but I was WRONG! "Mr Randall Wright, surprise me!" I'm not only surprised - I am also very much impressed!
