Talky and slow-moving vacation comedy is the third in Rohmer's "Tales of the Four Seasons" series. Young Gaspard (Poupaud) is spending a month in a borrowed flat in the seaside resort of Dinard. He becomes friendly with waitress Margot (Langlet) while he waits for his girlfriend Lena (Nolin) to join him, but is also introduced to Margot's friend Solene (Simon), who's interested in a quick fling with Gaspard. When all three women agree to accompany him on a sightseeing trip, he's got more a than a little maneuvering to do. French with subtitles.
