According to Rohmer, the third film of the "Tales of the Four Seasons" is his "most personal vehicle." Based on events from Rohmer's youth, A Tale of Summer follows amateur musician Gaspard (Melvil Poupard) to a seaside resort in Dinard, on the coast of Brittany. There three women (Amanda Langlet, Gwenalle Simon, Aurelia Nolin) each offer the possibility of romance, but Gaspard's inability to commit to just one places all of his chances at love in jeopardy.

"The third, sunniest and funniest of Rohmer's seasonal tales...wonderfully witty." -TimeOut London
