About the film: The latest searing drama from French master Philippe Garrel (Regular Lovers) loosely evokes Godard’s Contempt, as a once-happy marriage between a brooding painter (Louis Garrel, the director’s son) and his movie-star wife (Monica Bellucci) hits the rocks. When another young couple joins them on a Roman holiday, tensions and passions flare. A Burning Hot Summer also contains one of director Garrel’s spectacular dance sequence, this time with Garrel fils and Bellucci doing a terpsichorean turn to the Dirty Pretty Things’ “Truth Begins.” With a score by the Velvet Underground’s John Cale, and the legendary Maurice Garrel (the director’s father, Louis’s grandpere) in his final role. “Philippe Garrel is the proverbial underrated genius. He is the closest thing to a poet functioning today in French cinema.”——- Olivier Assayas.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
