SOMMER '04 AN DER SCHLEI

At 40, Miriam's life seems ideal. Beautiful and assured, her happy relationship with her partner André, and their 15-year-old son Niels, is symbolised by their idyllic summer house by the sea. But then Nils invites his 12-year-old girlfriend Livia to spend the holidays with them, and Miriam finds herself drawn against her will into a sexual tug-of-war with the precociously carnal young girl - a contest which unlocks previously unsuspected reserves of jealousy, bitterness and self-doubt. Krohmer's second feature will undoubtedly touch a chord in many female viewers, commenting as it does on a society - and, for that matter, a film culture - where adolescents are discovering (and flaunting) their sexual identities at ever earlier ages, yet where representations of mature women's sexuality remain strangely circumspect.
