SUMMER 1993 balances delicately on the aftermath of a tragedy, but its tone is far from dismal. Melancholy, yes, and even momentarily wrenching; yet its emotional arc bends insistently from inarticulate sadness to gentle catharsis.

Rating: 5/5 -- In its subtlety, richness and warmth it is entirely beguiling - complex and simple at the same time. It is also very moving. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- The film doesn't detour or disturb, doesn't serpentine or surprise, as great cinema can. It just puts everything on the thematic picnic plate and tells us to get eating. Full Review

4 stars out of 5 -- Coaxing performances of astonishing naturalism out of Artigas and Robles, Simón deftly uses everyday incidents to capture the darker aspects of childhood innocence, as well as its simple joys.
Jul 10, 2018
Writer-director Carla Simón, whose gentle, poetic drama SUMMER 1993 reflects on the time she went to live with her uncle’s family after the death of her mother, offers a relatable array of candid emotions and observations that feel distinctly culled from real life.
