Storyline

What do you dream of when you're 16 years old and in a seaside resort in Normandy in the 1980s? A best friend? A lifelong teen pact? Scooting off on adventures on a boat or a motorbike? Living life at breakneck speed? No. You dream of death. Because you can't get a bigger kick than dying. And that's why you save it till the very end. The summer holidays are just beginning, and this story recounts how Alexis grew into himself.

Film Review - Summer of 85 (2020) 6.7/10
8 August 2020 | by lasttimeisawSee all my reviews

"Be that as it may, even as a minor Ozon's work, SUMMER OF 85 is well-conceived and constructed in a holistic level, not least for recreating the 80s laidback ambience that matches the film's alluring scenery, and the savvy message of moving-on. But Yours Truly cannot dispel a faint whiff of disappointment, entering the third decade of feature filmmaking, when will Ozon's career reach a prefigured apotheosis is still anybody's guess. Patience must be reserved to both his devotees and the quondam wunderkind himself."
