When she arrives in the French region of Champagne in the company of her mother, her two sisters and her brother, sixteen-year-old Joss Grey is still just a teen-ager. At the time of her return to England, she has become a woman… What has happened is that Mrs. Grey fell ill at the beginning of their stay and was sent to hospital leaving the foursome in the care of Madame Zizi, the manager of the hotel where they are staying. She has a lover, Eliot, who gets lodging there. Unaware of the bond between him and the proprietor, Joss develops the attraction to the forty-year-old man. Eliot is so friendly… Eliot is so handsome… A bit enigmatic perhaps, but so charming…

Susannah York is nothing short of sensational in her first starring assignment as the eldest sister in charge of two sibling during a summer “holiday” in France. She lets us into her heart and mind in a most disconcertingly yet effectively personal way. We learn with her the delicate balances needed between vulnerability, responsibility, and the dangers of reacting with protective cynicism.

Director Lewis Gilbert excels in showing lead characters battling with the difference between infatuation and love. The Greengage Summer, known here in the US as “A Loss of Innocence”, may be his crowning achievement in this area. Kenneth More and Danielle Darrieux, two of the European cinemas very best, are extraordinary in their key supporting roles.

Don’t miss this unique gem.
