L'été meurtrier

Jean Becker France, 1983

Kenji's rating of the film One Deadly Summer

The film starts out as a broad sort of sex comedy but then explores darker places. It had a strong effect on me as a young man in the early 80s, admittedly in large part due to the sight of Isabelle Adjani in a ra-ra skirt, and less. In short, i fell in lust, but the film's worth seeing anyway. It's just been picked in Sight & Sound's (forgotten pleasures) list of 75 Mainstream Marvels of the last 30 Years.
