A Sunday in the Country

Shortly before the onset of the Great War, an underachieving painter receives his his rabble rousing daughter, his uptight son, daughter-in-law, and grandchildren at his countryside estate, where he lives alone with his faithful maidservant. Bertrand Tavernier's leisurely A Sunday in the Country is both observant and sad containing an exceptional performance from Louis Ducreux and sublime, painterly cinematography.
