Directed by: Henrik Martin Dahlsbakken | Narrative Feature | 73 min | Norwegian/French/English | North American PremiereAbout the Film
In this psychological thriller, a solitary woman's world is turned upside down when a vacationing Norwegian couple welcome themselves into her home in the French countryside, slowly invading her peace. Who are the foreigners? Why do they seem to not want to leave any time soon? With hypnotic camera movements, a seductive score, compelling characters, and a series of twists and turns, LATE SUMMER explores the lead actress's psyche, resurfacing her sexual desires, fears, and traumas. The film evokes memory's hallucinatory terrain and the human inability to recover from past wounds, which, despite the passage of time, refuse to heal. Presented with support from the Norwegian Film Institute and Norwegian Consulate.
