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 finds every excuse to stay at home in Paris with his mistress, Elizabeth invites friend Julie 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, Jerome and son Loic, are roughing it at a nearby caravan park and hating every minute. Meanwhile enjoying life stateside Elizabeth & Bertrand's nymphomaniac daughter, Emilie, is partying with boyfriend Kevin, 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 ramp[ant 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
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'
