The Mediterranean summer: blue sea, blazing sun... and 250 kg of gold stolen by Rhino and his gang! They had found the perfect hideout: an abandoned and remote hamlet now taken over by a woman artist in search for inspiration.

Unfortunately surprise guests and two cops compromise their plan: the heavenly place where wild happenings and orgies used to take place turns into a gruesome battlefield... Relentless and mindblowing.

From the novel LAISSEZ BRONZER LES CADAVRES written by Jean-Patrick Manchette and Jean-Pierre Bastid, published by Gallimard in 1971
