A Burning Hot Summer Synopsis

Loosely evoking Godard’s Contempt, A Burning Hot Summer examines the once-happy marriage between brooding painter Frédéric (Louis Garrel, the director’s son) and his movie-star wife Angèle (Bellucci) as it hits the rocks. When another young couple—actors Paul (Jérôme Robart/Frontier of Dawn, Regular Lovers) and Elisabeth (Céline Sallette/House of Pleasures, Marie Antoinette)—joins them on a Roman holiday, tensions and passions flare. The film features a score by the Velvet Underground’s John Cale, with the legendary Maurice Garrel (the director’s father) in his final role.
