MUBI's take

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!
