A Burning Hot Summer
A young French couple goes for a summer-long visit with another couple in Rome, only to witness their friends' marriage start to crumble in the poignant A Burning Hot Summer. The new drama from acclaimed director Philippe Garrel (Regular Lovers) tells the story of brooding painter Frederic (the director's son Louis Garrel of The Dreamers and Ma Mere) and his growing suspicions about his beautiful movie-star wife Angele (Monica Bellucci, Irreversible, The Matrix Reloaded). Visitors Paul (Jerome Robart, Frontier of the Dawn) and Elisabeth (Celine Sallette, House of Pleasures) see the tension rise between their friends - and also begin to draw apart themselves as Paul devotes more and more of his time to the needy Frederic. Will a shocking and tragic event bring Paul and Elisabeth closer, or will it doom their relationship?
An IFC Films theatrical release nominated for the top prize at the 2011 Venice Film Festival, and featuring an evocative score from the Velvet Underground's legendary John Cale, the "electrifying, haunting" (Patrick Z. McGavin, Time Out Chicago) A Burning Hot Summer sears its way into the heart.
