From Oscar(r) nominated filmmaker Patrice Leconte comes this story of love, loss and memory that lingers like no other. It is the summer of 1958 in wealthy Lake Geneva, where an enigmatic young Frenchman (Hippolyte Girardot of JUMP TOMORROW and MANON OF THE SPRING) begins an affair with a beautiful starlet (stunning model Sandra Majani) under the watchful eye of her flamboyant elderly mentor (Jean-Pierre Marielle of COUP DE TORCHON and THE DA VINCI CODE). But in a season full of secrets, is truth the most elusive passion of all? Richard Bohringer (THE COOK, THE THIEF, HIS WIFE & HER LOVER) co-stars in the international hit that DVD Times calls "a spellbindingly erotic slice of nostalgia combining sensuous photography, a brilliant soundtrack and a trio of pitch-perfect performances."
