).

Written by Catherine Corsini together with Laurette Polmanss, the story kicks off in Paris, in 1971. Delphine meets Carole. The former, a farmer’s daughter, has moved to the capital in order to become financially independent and dreams of heading up her own business, an inconceivable notion at that time. The latter, who is in a relationship with Alexandre, is gleefully experiencing the beginnings of the feminist rebellion. One of them is reserved, keeps herself to herself, but she knows that she likes other women. The other was completely unaware that she could experience an attraction like this. Their encounter throws their lives into turmoil – but their budding love affair will soon clash with reality.

Produced by Elisabeth Perez for Chaz Productions, La belle saison is co-produced by France 3 Cinéma, Belgian firm d'Artémis Productions and Solaire Production. Having been pre-purchased by Canal+ and OCS, the feature (which has benefitted from the CNC’s support fund for development) is also being backed by the Limousin region, ISF Cinema, and Sofica Indéfilms, Soficinéma and Cinémage. The eight-week shoot will take place in Limousin (Haute-Vienne and Creuse) and Paris from 22 July until 16 September. Distribution in France and international sales will be handled by Pyramide.
