Co-scripted by Jacques Prévert (Les Enfants du Paradis), Summer Night was banned from cinemas for the duration of the Occupation for its dark portrayal of the hedonistic excesses of the ruling class. Today, it is often singled out as Jean Grémillon’s greatest achievement.
A shimmering glass hotel at the top of a remote Provençal mountain provides the setting for a tragi-comic tapestry about an obsessive love pentangle, whose principals range from an artist to a hotel manager to a dam worker.
