3 out of 10 At The Height Of Summer
Frances from Clare, 08 Oct 2008
No war, no politics & no special effects in this beautifully filmed story of 3 sisters and the secrets that lie behind the apparently close and happy family. The unbelieveable colour & beauty of Vietnam is the highlight of the movie and if you thought there was rain in Angelas Ashes you should see this!

3.5 out of 10 Heading where?
john from Galway, 21 May 2011
Very slow film where nothing ever happens and there seems to be no plot...yet it is very pleasing to watch, visually atractive film with great cinematography. I found it relaxing.

What's it about....
Set in Hanoi, Vietnam, 'At The Height Of Summer' is a rich visual banquet overflowing with lush, artful images that unfold with the same languorous slowness with which the the film's enigmatic characters and relationships develop.
