Val Kilmer stars as the corpse of a wanted man in this western exploring the greed and iniquity of the lawless frontier. When a stranger rides into a small town toting the lifeless body of a noted outlaw, his intentions are to collect the bounty and be on his way.
Director Piotr Uklanski breaks new ground in the realm of Polish cinema with this symbolic Western that can be viewed as either contemporary art or simple entertainment. The first Polish Western in the history of cinema, Summer Love opens as the nameless stranger (Karel Roden) gallops into town toting the corpse of a wanted man (Val Kilmer). Subsequently entering into an affair with the local barmaid (Katarzyna Figura), the stranger soon becomes embroiled in a sordid love triangle between the pretty drink slinger and the booze-guzzling sheriff (Boguslaw Linda).
