SUMMER ON FILM

La Piscine is our favourite summertime movie. The beauty of Romy Schneider and Alain Delon at their prime, her impeccable summer style accentuated by her golden hair against her bronzed skin, the South of France as a backdrop for stories of love and lust, all unsurpassed. But it is not the only film that we can’t get enough of on cool summer nights, weather at an open air cinema with views of the Acropolis or on our balcony with a glass of wine. There are 10 more, in case you needed a plan for tonight 😉
