Summertime (La belle saison)
In France in the early 70s, Delphine (Izïa Higelin) leaves the farm where she grew up and moves to Paris, fleeing from her oppressive family life. Here she meets Carole (Cécile De France), Spanish teacher and feminist activist: Delphine joins the movement and passion explodes between the two women, even though Carole has a partner. But Delphine will soon have to return to her village to face her family… Presenting the dichotomy between civil commitment and sentimental dilemma, Catherine Corsini’s film moves gracefully between historic frescos and bucolic melodrama (with Rohmerian echoes).
Winner of the Variety Piazza Grande at the Festival di Locarno 2015, and best film at the TGLFF in Torino 2016.
