Top 10 Films is delighted to be giving away the potent erotic thriller One Deadly Summer on Blu-ray. See below for free entry…
With more Cesar Awards to her name than any other French actor and a host of Academy Award nominations, Isabelle Adjani (Possession, Nosferatu the Vampyre) 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’ete Meurtrier), a potent blend of neo-noir and erotic thriller that picked up four Cesar Awards including Best Actress for Adjani.
Adjani plays Elle, a provocative nineteen-year-old who returns home to rural Provence with her mother and sick father. Her arrival turns heads in the sleepy village where the male inhabitants are mesmerised by her looks. She soon finds a
suitor in the naive Pin-Pon (Alain Souchon, Agnès Varda’s Jane B. for Agnès V.), moving into his mother’s house with him but soon a dark secret from her past emerges as the film reaches its shattering conclusion.
