Éric Rohmer covered all the seasons in his oeuvre, but he seemed to have a special affinity for the underdressed liminal space of summer vacation. Patrick Bachau’s insufferable art bro winds up sharing a borrowed villa by the ocean with a frequently bikini-ed young woman (Haydée Politoff) who remains indifferent to him, thereby driving him a tiny bit mad — in an intellectually superior way, of course. You don’t turn to Rohmer for lols, but this is perhaps his funniest film. -Lee Gardner
