Five Days One Summer (1982)


 Fred Zinnemann


 Michael Austin, Kay Boyle (story)


 Sean Connery, Betsy Brantley, Lambert Wilson
Fred Zinnemann's final film is a meditative examination of an illicit May-December romance, set in the mountain expanse of the Swiss Alps.Sean Connery plays Douglas, a middle-aged Scottish doctor on vacation in the Alps in 1932 with a beautiful and fresh-faced young woman, Kate (Betsy Brantley), whom he introduces as his wife. Douglas has taken Kate to the Alps to introduce her to the invigorating sport of mountain climbing. When Douglas and Kate arrive at the mountain lodge, their happiness is tempered by a knowing melancholy. Through flashbacks, it is revealed that Kate has been madly in love with Douglas since she was a little girl and that she seduced him away from another woman. The flashbacks also reveal that Kate is not his wife, but his niece. But then, in their mountain retreat, young and handsome guide Johann (Lambert Wilson) makes an entrance. Johann immediately develops an attraction for Kate. Now Kate has to worry if the feeling is mutual.

    I was happy to see this film available, finally. This slow moving, beautifully filmed movie is so well done in settings and costuming of the period, it is worth watching just for those qualities. However, if you are a Sean Connery fan this is really great. As a middle-aged man, Connery is more handsome and sexy than in any of his earlier films. The story is interesting and thought provoking. It is hard to accept Connery as a cad, but he certainly is an attractive one.
