While on holiday near St Tropez, Marianne and Jean-Paul enjoy lazing and making love around the pool. But things take a chillier turn when Marianne’s ex-lover shows up with his teenage daughter. The onscreen reunion of the former dream couple (Alain Delon and Romy Schneider) adds to the tension of this taut psychological drama.

Preceded by François Ozon’s short film A Summer Dress (Une robe d’été), 15 mins (cert. 15) and an introduction by Marion Hallet, PhD Candidate in Film Studies at King’s College London

Curated by Taryn Joffe of the National Film and Television School, the films are part of the Stolen Summers film season – a celebration of the European summer holiday and the pleasure and trouble that travel invites.
