One Deadly Summer (1983, France) CultFilms Dual Format Blu-ray/DVD Review

One Deadly Summer (1983)

Based upon Sébastien Japrisot’s 1977 novel of the same name, L’Été meurtrier – or as it is known in English speaking territories, One Deadly Summer – stars Isabelle Adjani as Eliane “Elle” Wieck; a troubled young woman who settles with her family into the small rural town in the south of France.

“All he wants is to get her stupid knickers off, and all that she wants is that he manages. And that he doesn’t get his fingers caught in the zip. Just to forget for a moment that he is the son… of that piece of shit bastard father of his.”

With more Cesar Awards to her name than any other French actor and a host of Academy Award nominations, Isabelle Adjani is perhaps the most celebrated French screen star of all time. In 1983 she hit a career defining high, in Jean Becker’s much-lauded crime classic One Deadly Summer (L’Été meurtrier), a potent blend of neo-noir and erotic thriller that picked up four Cesar Awards including Best Actress for Adjani.

“What do you want? To find out which of the bastards was your father?”
