Where the Summer Goes (Chapters on Youth)

On a very hot summer day, a group of youngsters take off for the river. To pass the time, they amuse themselves with the story of a man whose pet snake tried to swallow him whole. In sharing this tale, it seems that they unwittingly set the tone of this lazy, carefree day. Meticulously composed images, reminiscent more of paintings than scenes from a film, tangibly evoke the atmosphere of a languorous summer, its sultry heat, and the timelessness that can be spent in delicious tranquillity, or sharing even more delicious romantic adventures.
