Summer Things is a hilarious blend of small-town snobbery, insatiable lust and infidelity. When Elizabeth's (Charlotte Rampling) wayward husband Bertrand (Jacques Dutronc) finds every excuse to stay at home in Paris with his mistress, Elizabeth invites friend Julie on holiday instead. She's a single mother desperate for holiday romance, but with a screaming baby in tow. On the other side of town their hard-up neighbours are roughing it at a nearby caravan park while Elizabeth's and Bertrand's nymphomaniac daughter, Emile, is partying stateside with boyfriend Kevin, unaware that he's embezzled the money from her father's firm to pay for the trip…

Having known nothing about this film I took a chance and bought it secondhand because the box looked amusing, to be honest I wish I had bought it new for it was such a funny film that I know I will want to watch it over again. I love french films and am slowly building my collection. The thing I love about these types of movies is you can never get bored of them because there is always something going on which you can pick up again on another viewing. There is nothing bad about this production, the scenes are cleverly intertwined and the acting is superb, a would almost go as far as to say there is a laugh a minute!

'Summer Things' is witty, very sexy, thought provoking, smart and sizzles in every way. Packed with so many interesting ingredients it can't fail to be enjoyable - and it doesn't. It's an entertaining look at life, love, lust and infidelity in a wonderfully absurd and hilarious farce of epic proportions - and it all begins when rich housewife Elizabeth (Charlotte Rampling) takes a summer holiday that proves to be unforgettable for all concerned...

When her unfaithful husband Bertrand (Jacques Dutronc) makes excuses to stay in Paris to enjoy an ongoing affair with transsexual Rena, Elizabeth sets off for her vacation at an upmarket seaside resort taking friend Julie for company. Single mother Julie (Clotilde Courau) has her own ideas on how to enjoy the break - desperate for a steamy holiday romance she's in no mood to allow her screaming baby or their hard-up neighbours (who just happen to be roughing it in a nearby trailer park) dampen her enthusiasm for some passion. Spicing things up further, other guests at Elizabeth's posh hotel who become entangled in the frantic goings on are depressed jealous husband Jean-Pierre (played by Director Michel Blanc), his exasperated wife Lulu (Carole Bouquet) and serial womaniser Maxime (Vincent Elbaz). Hormonal antics are also taking place in Chicago where Elizabeth and Bertrand's promiscuous teenage daughter Emilie (Lou Doillon) parties wildly with boyfriend Kevin who is paying for their fun with money embezzled from Bertrand's firm. Did I mention the word farce? The crazier it becomes just adds to the enjoyment because no matter how complex things get, this wild bunch of holidaymakers wont let anything get in their way of their constant search for pleasure...

Blanc cleverly links the various story lines.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Summer Things/Embrassez Quiz Vous Voudrez is one of those films that probably shouldn't really work but does. Based on a British novel by Joseph Connolly following various middle class characters (upwardly and downwardly mobile) on a holiday that takes in various affairs, jealousies and suicide attempts, it's a light confection that works surprisingly well, not least because people DON'T do the right thing (when estate agent Jacques Dutronc finds out an employee has reduced the price on a desperately short of cash friend's house for a backhander, he does nothing to rectify the situation). Much of what happens is fairly predictable, with the exception of Charlotte Rampling keeping her clothes on for once, but the performances are strong and Michel Blanc's direction keeps it all on track. Nothing profound, but surprisingly likeable.

Extras are fairly light - just a trailer and a photo montage with an audio essay by the director.

An amusing film in which Charlotte Rampling (as usual) steals the show. Most characters are caricatures, and as such, the actors are quite good. It is a full-blown farce, sort of "over-the-top", exaggerated in just about every scene. As such it is quite good and yes, it is funny and moving at the same time, though not at all credible.

Nice entertainment if you accept the "farce" premise and go along for the ride. Rampling alone is worth the ticket price.

If you don't speak French, there are other versions of this movie on Amazon that has English subtitles. One is with a yellow cover of Charlotte Rampling and a parasol on the cover.
