From Patrice Leconte
, the director of The Hairdresser's Husband,
comes an intoxicating masterpiece of delicate eroticism. Victor Charma (Hippolyte Girardot
, Manon de Sources
) looks back at an idyllic summer on Lake Geneva in the late 50s which he spent with the beautiful aspiring actress Yvonne (Sandra Majani
) and her mysterious friend Dr Meinthe (Jean-Pierre Marielle
, Tous Les Matins Du Monde
). In hiding from military service and the Algerian War, would-be-writer Charma is drawn to Yvonne on his first encounter, and they seemed destined to be together, however the sun-filled days of social gatherings and passionate assignations prove all too fleeting.
