“Summer” is a beautifully shot coming of age film, filled with the pastel colors of summer, and standout performances and chemistry between the young leading actresses.
Director Colette Bothof, who grew up in small countryside village, has found a profound personal inspiration for the making of her acclaimed Dutch film.
The summer is sweltering and hot in a village where everyday life is dominated by the humming power plant. Sixteen year old Anne and her friends spend their days biking through the winding roads that lead nowhere and everywhere – it’s a time of adventure and youthful awakening. Anne, however, feels like an outsider, until she meets Lena, a new girl in town who rides a motorbike, wears leather, and is different from everyone else. Do you dare to be different in a place where everything stays the same?
