KINO Expat: Été 85 (EN subs)

Hoezo in Kino

A carefree summer on the coast of Normandy with a new lover, an old bike and a fly, sleeveless denim jacket: everything was way easier in 1985. However, even with a few simple ingredients, François Ozon knows how to deliver a film with a significant impact that deeply empathizes with the characters and which honours his already impressive work. A perfect surrogate holiday with a rough edge.

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.
