Été 85 (Summer of 85) is a story of friendship and love between two teenage boys at a seaside resort in Normandy in the mid-1980s. When 16-year-old Alexis capsizes off the coast of Le Tréport, 18-year-old David heroically saves him. Alexis thinks he’s just met the friend of his dreams. But will the dream last more than one summer?
Été 85 is the gay summer-of-love story to end them all and boasts a killer soundtrack including The Cure and is scored by non-other than Air’s JB Dunckel. The movie is already considered the French answer to the tremendous success movie “Call Me By Your Name”. The movie was initially supposed to be called 'Été 84' ('Summer of 84'). Robert Smith, the singer of The Cure, refused to grant François Ozon the permission to use his song 'In Between Days' because it was actually released a year later, in 1985. Ozon wrote back a letter to Robert Smith asking for a lower price for the rights and saying that he could change the name of his movie to 'Été 85', which was finally done.
