Summer holidays are just beginning, as François Ozon‘s Été 85 gets it’s First Teaser Trailer.

Life after Cannes Film Festival goes on as internationally acclaimed French filmmaker.As his latest film Summer Of 85 (it’s English title) starts it’s promotion push be it other festivals or the big screen. The release dates will be all down to how easing of lockdown goes worldwide.

The film is a story of coming of age of love, life and death of a 16 year old young man during the Summer of 1985. It all happens around the French seaside resort in Normandy and it certainly looks a story set around sexuality.

If you enjoy the work of Xavier Dolan or Call Me By Your Name, you are certain to enjoy this one. But who can’t enjoy films from a director who brought us the likes of Frantz, By The Grace Of God, 8 Women?

The Trailer is short, it has no subtitles. No need to worry it’s dialogue free playing to The Cure in the background.

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.

The film stars Félix Lefebvre, Benjamin Voisin, Philippine Velge, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi, and Melvil Poupaud.
