That Kind of Summer
Main Competition
Invited to a rest home to explore their sexual issues, three women spend their days and nights trying to tame their inner demons.
Invited to a rest home to explore their sexual issues, three women spend their days and nights trying to tame their inner demons. Under the detached supervision of a German therapist and a considerate social worker, the group attempts to maintain a delicate balance. For the young Geisha, somber Léonie and unpredictable Eugénie, it's a chance to get away from the noise, to engage with the present, and think about the future.

Denis Côté

Born in New Brunswick in 1973, Denis Côté began making short films after completing his film studies. While working as a film critic, he completed in 2005 his first feature-length film, Drifting States, which won the Golden Leopard Award at Locarno Film Festival, where he will also be rewarded for his direction in Curling in 2010. With Carcasses, presented at the 2009 Cannes Directors’ Fortnight, Vic + Flo Saw A Bear and Social Hygiene, both rewarded at the Berlinale in 2013 and 2021, Denis Côté stands up as one of the most prominent filmmakers within Quebec contemporary cinema, exploring his preferred themes, solitude, intimate fears and alienation, both through fictions and documentaries constantly pushing further the limits of his formal work.
