Marion is about to divorce from her husband and takes her 15-year-old niece Pauline on a vacation to Normandy. There, the two navigate the men around them. Marion runs into her old flame Pierre and attempts to set him up with Pauline, while she starts a liaison with middle-aged Henri.
A quintessential summer film from the French New Wave’s resident sexual moralist, Éric Rohmer. A sun-bathed romance set at a resort town in 80s Normandy, Rohmer’s film lovingly evokes the extended feeling of summertime: the touch of skin, the heat of the sun—and oh, such erotic possibilities!
