Les nuits d ete 4


Metz, East of France, 1959.Michel and Hélène Aubertin form a perfect couple. Michel is an ambitious notary and Hélène divides her time between charity work and raising their son Jacky. There is nothing unusual about them apart from the fact that Michel has a dark secret : every weekend, he goes to his second house to become Mylène beneath the gaze of Flavia, an experienced transvestite and his former comrade in arms during the phony war.

Summer nights, Mario Fanfani's first film, unveils, to the backdrop of the Algerian War, the widespread phenomenon of cross-dressing, which carries a strong political significance.
The film addresses the issues of difference and identity, going over the simple statement, thanks to the subtle performance of the actors and the musical hall scenes.
