A young couple goes for a summer-long visit with a fellow couple in Rome, only to witness their friends’ marriage start to crumble in the poignant and brilliantly observed A BURNING HOT SUMMER. The new drama from acclaimed director Philippe Garrel (Regular Lovers) tells the story of brooding painter Fr‚d‚ric (the director’s son Louis Garrel of The Dreamers and Ma MŠre) and his growing suspicions about his beautiful movie-star wife AngŠle (Monica Bellucci, Irreversible, The Matrix Reloaded). Visitors Paul (J‚r“me Robart, Frontier of the Dawn) and Elisabeth (C‚line Sallette, House of Pleasures) see the tension rise between their friends – and also begin to draw apart as Paul devotes more and more of his time to the needy Fr‚d‚ric. Will a shocking and tragic event bring Paul and Elisabeth closer, or will it doom their relationship? Nominated for the top prize at the 2011 Venice Film Festival, and featuring an evocative score from the Velvet Underground’s legendary John Cale, A BURNING HOT SUMMER sears its way into the heart.
