General information

Rated 3 out of 5

“Laura, les ombres de l’été” is a French film released in 1979, directed by photographer and director David Hamilton. The film tells the story of a young girl named Laura (Maud Adams) who spends her summer in a seaside villa with her mother and her mother’s lover.

The film is known for its beautiful and dreamlike cinematography, which captures the idyllic setting of the villa and the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape. The film also features a haunting and ethereal score by composer Francis Lai.

While the film’s visuals are stunning, the story itself is somewhat lacking. The plot is slow-moving and often feels aimless, with little in the way of conflict or tension to drive the narrative forward. The characters are also underdeveloped, with Laura in particular feeling more like a symbol or object than a fully realized person.

Additionally, the film has been criticized for its portrayal of underage sexuality, with some arguing that it borders on exploitation. This is a valid concern, as Laura’s youth and innocence are frequently fetishized by both the camera and the other characters.

Overall, “Laura, les ombres de l’été” is a visually striking film that suffers from a lack of compelling narrative and character development. While it may be of interest to fans of David Hamilton’s work or to those interested in French cinema of the 1970s, it is not a film that is likely to resonate with a wider audience.
