Aging Dixon Greenwood, inter-nationally acclaimed filmmaker, agrees to a three-month residence in Germany, having only to give one interview in return for his stay. Greenwood’s magnum opus, SUMMER, set in Germany in 1921, provides the substance for the interviewer’s questions; talking about it sends Dixon into a melancholy remembrance of things past. Narrator Robertson Dean enhances Ward Just’s subtleties in structure and character development with his impeccable diction and elegant pacing. His voice rumbles in the ear, his words dropping like velvet pebbles into a pond of dark silk. Dean brings poignancy to the aging filmmaker, who fears he has lost his creativity, his voice, and his audience. Dean’s performance lends a formal grace to Greenwood’s long reflections on Germany’s history, its people, and the necessity for human connection.
