Dappled summer B
Sunshine through lush foliage, rustling breezes, cicadas and crickets, hazy vistas, languid days... I love and search for these films.
Must have: a significant part of the film or at least a critical scene with the "dappled summer" criterion of sunshine amidst greenery.
Usually: filmed in natural daylight, outdoors in nature in the spring or summer, with a soundtrack with field recordings of insects and wind through leaves.
Excludes: urban, dry or treeless settings (no desert, scrubland, grassland, savanna, tundra..) and most beach movies with a few honourable exceptions. Also fiction preferred to documentaries, mainly, and colour to black & white almost always.
