Summertime

1970s France. Twenty-something Delphine (Izïa Higelin) leaves her parents country farm for the bright lights of Paris. She meets Carole (Cécile de France), a Parisian activist involved in the stirrings of the feminist movement. The spark of attraction between them is undeniable, and they embark on a passionate, all-consuming love affair.

Everything comes to a dramatic halt, however, when Delphine is called back to her parents’ farm when her father suffers a stroke. Carole is left desolate in the city, unable to picture life without the younger woman, and shortly afterwards she follows Delphine to the family home. It’s only when she ventures into Delphine’s world that Carole realises what is at stake for the two of them, when their love is tested by those closest to them. From vibrant scenes of civil unrest on the streets of Paris, to the lushly photographed rural landscape, director Catherine Corsini has crafted a radiant, sensual exploration of love between two women caught in a turbulent era.✮✮✮✮ “Potent romance” - Wendy Ide, The Observer✮✮✮✮ “Higelin and de France play their parts to perfection” - Culture Whisper
