Turns out to be a triumph of unexpectedness in its slimmed-down story of two teenage girls, one middle-to-lower-class, and the other upper-class.

Pawlikowski doesn't spend much time explaining his characters or telling us why they do what they do, and that's exactly why they remain so compelling.

While the movie's young lovers happen to be female, this is not a story of forbidden fervor, but one that effectively captures the first flush of teenage infatuation and passion that will resonate with anyone, of any sex.

It is at once a beautiful work of artifice and a convincing reflection of life's messy ambiguities. Aesthetically contained, morally uncertain.

My Summer of Love remains stubbornly stalled between 'artistic' lesbian hubba-hubba and such tougher fare as Peter Jackson's superior Heavenly Creatures.

No friendship is ever quite as consuming as one between two adolescent girls, and My Summer of Love very quickly moves on into dangerous Heavenly Creatures territory.

In adapting a novel by Helen Cross, the Polish-born Pawlikowski has made a strangely absorbing movie about trust and betrayal that showcases the work of two fine young British actresses, Natalie Press and Emily Blunt.
