Austrian drinking habits, calm predatory be­havior, French fries on the beach … a collection of amusing, bizarre, and serious observations lies as a voice over, over recordings of a man swimming and excerpts from Thomas Vinterberg’s Festen (1998). Actually – a Summer Film is like a mischievous invitation to swim some crawl: in an audiovisual stream of consciousness.
