Randal Kleiser, director of Grease and The Blue Lagoon, now brings you his most provocative film, Summer Lovers. It's one summer you'll never forget. See more »
When casting in Greece, the production company lucked into a surprise. 'Hans Van Tongeren', the noted Dutch actor who created a sensation in the USA in Paul Verhoeven's Spetters (1980), was enlisted from the ranks of summer visitors. Actress Daryl Hannah passed him on a street in Thira, recognized him, and importuned him to meet the director. Hans did, read the part of Jan, and joined the production. See more »
When Cathy, wakes alone the first night in their villa, she awakes naked. She wraps a sheet around her, calling for Michael. A moment, later she finds him on the balcony, she is wearing both a bathrobe and a t-shirt. See more »
This is a great movie for those willing to throw caution to the wind and go for a ride. At first I was into it for the funky love-triangle. I wanted to see how it would turn out. As it progressed I found that I was paying less attention to the sexual aspects of the film and ended up lost in the eyes of Valérie Quennessen. Without a doubt she has the most beautiful soul I've ever seen in a woman's eyes.
The instant it ended I came to IMDb to see what else she's done. Then I learned the worst. Valérie died 10 years ago. I genuinely feel a loss in my heart.
I must be crazy...I must be in love.
