Midwinter envelopes a bleak and deserted costal -resort in sheets of freezing rain. Mathieu (Jeremie Elkaim) young, shy and introverted, returns to the place where he fell in love. Eighteen months previously, a family summer holiday catapulted him headfirst into a passionate teenage romance with the sensual, confident Cedric (Stephane Rideau). it all seems a lifetime away. That chance meeting brought about a year of pleasure and passion mixed with the torture and torment of first love. The pain and passion still burning within Mathieu can only embrace the future by reconciling with the past.
Complicated and interesting.

Hard to follow due to the many flash backs, but the German title "Summer and Winter" gives a little help. Also the German version of the DVD has a bonus film that I didn't find on the UK version "Une Robe d'Été". However, if you don't understand French or can read the German subtitles - forget it, but that's an interesting (short)film too. Both are about young adults and what happens below the belly line, so if one doesn't like to watch naked young men, these films are probably not for you.
