1971: Delphine, the daughter of French farmers, does not want to waste her life working on the land by day and enduring lonely nights. She runs away to the revolutionary Paris of those years to find independence, giving full rein to her desire to learn and be free. Then she meets Carole, a feminist activist who lives with Manuel, in an encounter that will change her life and will open the doors, not only to political engagement, emancipation and joie de vivre, but also to love.
Whilst portraying a movement aimed at achieving sexual, social, cultural and feminist liberation in the nineteen-seventies, La Belle Saison (Summertime) is a beautiful story of love and desire, freedom, engagement and militancy that oozes a sensuality and natural feeling which we can all understand. A superb film that defies classification.
