A vacationing couple are visited in their St Tropez villa by her old flame and his daughter.
Dir Jacques Deray
With Alain Delon, Romy Schneider, Maurice Ronet, Jane Birkin
Remade (but not bettered) as A Bigger Splash, this superbly cast slow-burn thriller gauges the sexual tensions that arise when a vacationing couple (Delon and Schneider) are visited in their St Tropez villa by her old flame (Ronet) and his daughter (Birkin). The sizzling summer heat mirrors both the mood of languid erotic dalliance and the jealous passions that threaten to boil over.
