“Été 85” (Summer of 85) is a story of friendship and love between two teenage boys at a seaside resort in Normandy in the mid-1980s. When 16-year-old Alexis capsizes off the coast of Le Tréport, 18-year-old David heroically saves him. Alexis thinks he’s just met the friend of his dreams. But will the dream last more than one summer?
Since 2000, you’d be hard-pressed to find a filmmaker that has received as much acclaim internationally than French filmmaker François Ozon. With numerous films (including “Double Lover,” “Young & Beautiful,” “Time to Leave” and “Swimming Pool” ) released over the past 20 years that have received awards recognition, festival accolades, and critical acclaim, Ozon has made a name for himself as a filmmaker that just doesn’t release bad works. And this year, he keeps that trend going with the film, “Ete 85.” Ozon’s screenplay - adapted from the novel “Dance On My Grave” by English author Aidan Chambers — and direction showcase his unique ability to play with genre, including irresistible nods to American teen movies.
Été 85 is the gay summer-of-love story to end them all and boasts a killer soundtrack including The Cure and is scored by non-other than Air’s JB Dunckel. The movie is already considered the French answer to the tremendous success movie “Call Me By Your Name”. Eté 85 is in the running for a César selection of the best soundtrack.
Straddling darkness, comedy, and sensuality, ‘Été 85’ is ultimately a poignant tale about experiencing love for the first time. The movie was initially supposed to be called ‘Été 84’ (‘Summer of 84’). Robert Smith, the singer of The Cure, refused to grant François Ozon the permission to use his song ‘In Between Days’ because it was actually released a year later, in 1985. Ozon wrote back a letter to Robert Smith asking for a lower price for the rights and saying that he could change the name of his movie to ‘Été 85’, which was finally done.
The LP is housed in a deluxe jacket with leather laminate finish. The package includes a XL movieposter and insert with pictures and stills from the movie. Look closely at the the run-out groove to read some secret inscriptions.
