A Burning Hot Summer

Friday, June 29 - Thursday, July 5, 2012

The latest searing drama from French master Garrel (Regular Lovers) loosely evokes Godard’s Contempt, as a once-happy marriage between a brooding painter (Louis Garrel, the director’s son) and his movie-star wife (Monica Bellucci) hits the rocks. When another young couple joins them on a Roman holiday, tensions and passions flare. With a score by the Velvet Underground’s John Cale, and the legendary Maurice Garrel (the director’s father) in his final role.
