Sensual and elegant, Catherine Corsini’s SUMMERTIME follows Carole and Delphine as they fall in love against the backdrop of early feminist activism in 1971 France. After living in the city, Delphine is called home to help with her family farm in the countryside and is forced to choose between her responsibility to them and the life of love she had in Paris with Carole. An enlightening tale about the infatuation of first love and its universal themes.
“Sex and love have always been pervasive in French cinema, and both fuel Catherine Corsini’s moving lesbian drama Summertime”
– Film Journal
Perhaps the world is finally ready for a lesbian romance as direct and unapologetic as Summertime
– Peter Debruge, Variety
This personal and moving way of filming naked bodies… is reminiscent in places of the first brave films of Chantal Akerman
– Muriel Del Don, Cineuropa
A thought-provoking, sensual delight!
