A BURNING HOT SUMMER, a searing drama starring Monica Bellucci and Louis Garrel from French master Philippe Garrel (REGULAR LOVERS), examines the once-happy marriage between brooding painter Frederic (Louis Garrel, the director's son) and his movie-star wife Angele (Bellucci) as it hits the rocks. When another young couple--actors Paul (Jerome Robart) and Elisabeth (Celine Sallette)--joins them on a Roman holiday, tensions and passions flare. The film features a score by the Velvet Underground's John Cale, with the legendary Maurice Garrel (the director's father) in his final role.
