When 16-year-old Alexis capsizes off the coast of Normandy, 18-year-old David heroically saves him. Alexis has just met the friend of his dreams. But will the dream last for more than one summer? The summer of 85.
Supported by Cannes Film Festival 2020 Label:
“A story of friendship and love, or perhaps the opposite, between two boys in the mid-eighties at a seaside resort in Normandy. A dark, brooding tale of passion. Ozon plays around with genres in a film that upholds his inimitable style, in which staging is everything. The original soundtrack sees Bananarama and The Cure make their comeback.”
