France under occupation by the Germans during WW2: Two men inspired by a free France radio broadcast perpetrate an act of sabotage with unwitting consequences for them and their fellow villagers. In a vacation camp somewhere in the French country, Marc et Philippe are two of the counsellors. Marc is very virile, while Philippe is more reserved. A night, Marc surprises Philippe A car dealer, well-to-do and with a beautiful wife, finds himself attracted to his rather plain new temporary secretary. Despite her own commitments she feels the same and the two soon On improvising a burglary at a shady tycoon's home, Fred takes refuge in the hip and surreal universe of the Paris Metro and encounters its assorted denizens, the tycoon's henchmen and his disenchanted young wife.
A police inspector, suspecting an attorney of two child sex murders, has him held for a questioning session that goes on for hours. Oozing sensuality, the seductively alluring, Eliane Wieck, arrives with her demure German mother and her disabled father in a rural southern French town, in a frilled dress and with a small suitcase in her hand. Pin-Pon, a car mechanic and volunteer firefighter, instantly falls for the charms of the mysterious newcomer--and before long--they get married.
However, was it love at first sight for Eliane, too? What links her enigmatic presence to the family's old and dust-covered mechanical piano in the barn? It seems that the stage is set; but, what drives the cryptic young woman? Is it hungry curiosity or is it something far more sinister? Written by Nick Riganas.
The Lesson of L'Été meurtrier
L'Ete Meurtrier is a very complex, cleverly constructed film, well acted, written and directed. For me, one of the cleverest features is the fact that a number of characters take their turn at narration. Although Adjani puts in a very good performance, in my opinion the best performance is by Suzanne Flon, who plays the pivotal role of Cognata. The flashback scenes are not wholly convincing for me - they do not even begin to suggest that the action is taking place twenty years previously. Perhaps my favourite scene, is the one where Eliane sits outside her father's locked door and cries "tu est mon pere!
Overall, an excellent film which can be watched over and over again. In fact, one needs to watch it a few times to appreciate all the twists and turns in the plot. Start your free trial.
