the title of the film in Japanese, Bakushû, actually means “wheat harvest” which occurs in early summer (hence the English title).

A torinói ló (The Turin Horse) 2011, dir. Tarr Béla
In Turin on 3rd January, 1889, Friedrich Nietzsche steps out of the doorway of number six, Via Carlo Albert. Not far from him, the driver of a hansom cab is having trouble with a stubborn horse. Despite all his urging, the horse refuses to move, whereupon the driver loses his patience and takes his whip to it. Nietzsche comes up to the throng and puts an end to the brutal scene, throwing his arms around the horse’s neck, sobbing. His landlord takes him home, he lies motionless and silent for two days on a divan until he mutters the obligatory last words, and lives for another ten years, silent and demented, cared for by his mother and sisters. We do not know what happened to the horse.

帰って来たヨッパライ (Three Resurrected Drunkards) 1968 - 監督 大島渚 (dir. Oshima Nagisa)
The traditional English-language title for this film has always been “A Treatise on Japanese Baudy Songs” which is a good translation of the Japanese title. Criterion’s American DVD release, however, labels it as “Sing a Song of Sex” which drops the feeling of tradition for the sake of poetry - maybe, also, to give the title a little “pinku” vibe? I’d be curious to know if Criterion invented the title, and if not, where they found it.
