The French upper class is chastised in this socially conscious drama that centers on a naive young woman who travels to a mountain resort to be with her fiancé. Expecting a romantic weekend, she is terribly disappointed to discover that the wealthy patrons aresoulless vessels living only to suck the life out those less fortunate. She is really shocked to discover that her own lover has become one of these useless dilettantes who unfeelingly destroys their relationship when he finds it boring. The young woman then meets a man who works on a local dam. It is he that instills real values in her and saves her from a greedy fellow who wants her. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Lumière d'été

All Critics (1)

While it may seem a tad melodramatic at times, one of the great things about all this (and all the films in the collection), is that it's still never afraid to turn a dark eye towards the reality of human nature.
