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.
New York Times
Rating: 4/5 -- Whisked by night from her Barcelona home to a cosy country house, six-year-old Frida is a downcast observer of her unwanted new world. Her parents are dead and she must now find a new way forward with her uncle and his family. Full Review
Nobody's Reading This But Me
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
Rating: 3/5 -- A slow-moving summer, but one worth seeing through. Full Review
Little White Lies
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.
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.
Los Angeles Times
After her mother's death, six-year-old Frida (Laia Artigas) is sent to the countryside to live with her closest relatives. Her adjustment to new life is marked with grief, misunderstanding, new experiences, and wanting to be a normal child. Paula Robles and Bruna Cusí also star. Written and directed by Carla Simón.
