Summer 1993

Dir. Carla Simón. Spain, 2017. 1h 38m. Catalan/subs. Starring Laia Artigas, Paula Robles, Bruna Cusí, David Verdaguer, Fermí Reixach, Montse Sanz.

'A deeply personal child’s-eye view of loss, Summer 1993 is an utterly beguiling debut feature from Spanish writer-director Carla Simón’ ★★★★★ Wendy Ide, The Observer

'In its subtlety, richness and warmth it is entirely beguiling - complex and simple at the same time. It is also very moving.’ ★★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
