A Burning Hot Summer

A Burning Hot Summer ★★★★

A Complete History of Sexual Jealousy. Captures the intangible insecurities & abstract animosities of marriage and friendships in a nifty post-new wave package. Louis Garrel might now be one of my favourite actors, so well does he combine a brooding ferocity with a shy and awkward lightness (much akin to his godfather Jean-Pierre Léaud). A generation with no politics to fight for is left to its own self-destruction.
