"Nobody since Eric Rohmer gets the joys and the agony of young love under the French summer sun as well as Ozon does, time and again."—Alonso Duralde, The Wrap

"An unassuming but potent look at the way young love bruises but forges of Ozon’s most moving films to date."—Elena Lazic, Little White Lies

"Delights in romantic excess."—Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Magazine

When Alexis capsizes off the coast of Normandy, David comes to the rescue and soon opens the younger boy’s eyes to a new horizon of friendship, art, and sexual bliss. David’s worldly demeanor and Jewish heritage deliver an ardent jolt to Alexis’s traditional, working-class upbringing. After Alexis begins working at the seaside shop owned by David’s mother, the two lovers steal every possible moment for a fugitive kiss, a motorcycle ride, or a trip to the cinema. Their relationship is soon rocked by a host of challenges, including an unexpected sexual rival and a romantic oath that transcends life itself.
