Isabelle Adjani is one of the most celebrated French actresses of all time, having collected the most Cesar's (French Oscar) Awards ever; a multi Oscar® nominee and Cannes winner among others, voted by People Magazine as one of the 50 most beautiful women of all time, her acting talent and her staggering sensual beauty both reaching a career-defining high in Becker's ONE DEADLY SUMMER (L ETE MEURTRIER), which became the prototype for the many erotic thrillers which Hollywood churned out in its wake.
Shortly after Elle Wieck (Isabelle Adjani) moves to a small French village, she begins dating Pin-Pon (Alain Souchon), a quiet young mechanic who has grown obsessed with the beautiful newcomer. But Elle has her own reason for the relationship: Pin-Pon's deceased father was one of the men who brutally gang-raped her mother (Maria Machado) two decades before, and she's out to get her own form of revenge...
