Synopsis:
An unforgettable trip for everyone, 'Summer Things' is a hilarious blend of small-town snobbery, insatiable lust and fidelity. When Elizabeth's wayward husband Bertrand (Jacques Dutronc) finds every excuse to stay at home in Paris with his mistress, Elizabeth (Charlotte Rampling) invites friend Julie (Clotilde Courau) on holiday instead; a single mother desperate for holiday romance, but with a screaming baby in tow! On the other side of town their hard-up neighbours, Vero (Karin Viard), Jerome (Denis Podalydès) and son Loic (Gaspard Ulliel), are roughing it at a nearby caravan park and hating every minute.
Meanwhile enjoying life stateside Elizabeth and Bertrand's nymphomaniac daughter, Emilie (Lou Doillon), is partying with boyfriend Kevin (Sami Bouajila), unaware that he's embezzled the money from her father's firm to pay for the trip...The scene is set for a farce of outrageous proportions, involving bed swapping, mistaken identity, suicide bids, passionate affairs and rampant testosterone...but whatever difficulties the holidaymakers get into, they make sure it never gets in the way of their constant pursuit of pleasure.

Good mix of humour and serious and sexy too - Summer Things review by Md

Spoiler Alert
16/09/2014

Really enjoyed this as a Francophile it has some interesting takes on relationships and you might laugh when you think you shouldn't. Not sure what it has to say about men most of tge male characters are very flawed but so are the women but in different ways. Not so 'hopeless'

Fast, bawdy and good entertainment - Summer Things review by JS

Spoiler Alert

With Karin Viard in the cast, the quality of one actor is guaranteed. She seems to specialise in these lower budget offerings and deserves more recognition.

Story a bit "potty", but believable and 90 minutes well spent unraveling a complex plot.
