Storyline

A shy young girl who can't swim is bored by the normal happenings at the public pool that her mother and brother enjoy. Then a pair of unlikely patrons show up, an attractive young Asian woman wearing designer swimsuit and accessories, and her manservant with an umbrella and a case full of elegant bar items. The woman lounges, staying out of the water and sun, while her servant fixes her a drink and stands attentively in the sun in his black suit. The girl becomes fascinated with the pair, especially the servant, maybe to the point of obsession. When the woman falls asleep, the girl and the servant exchange long stares. Will they make a connection of some kind? Written by TimeNTide

one hot afternoon's intersection of 2 disparate lives
27 November 2006 | by (NY, United States) – See all my reviews

One hot afternoon at an outdoor pool, a young girl finds her curiosity piqued by the arrival of a glamorous young woman and her attendant. The story unfolds at a steady pace, appropriate to the setting of a hot, summer afternoon. The lush cinematography, artfully subtle acting, and well-chosen soundtrack beautifully reveal a story which illustrates the convergence of different lives. What starts simply, gradually evolves into an intricate dance in which the principal players paths progressively interweave into a dynamic, abstract exploration of the physical and psychological disruption-followed-by-harmony that happens when we allow others into our lives.

_Summer of the Serpent_ left me thoughtful about the ways in which allowing ourselves to accept others lives creates a welcome ripple in our well-worn realities. It's at once beautiful as well as smart.
