What better way to spend 97 minutes in November than trying to sort out romantic complications in shorts and sailboats?

If Krohmer and Knocke meticulously crafted the world Miriam inhabits, it is Gedeck's presence that makes it such a tangible mess -- which is meant as high praise indeed.

Straight ahead in form but unnerving and unexpected in content.

A well-crafted and deceptively leisurely film, with a heart of ice.

Alternating between polite probing and adolescent fidgeting once lust takes over, [actor Gedeck's] turn props up this intellectual potboiler even when it stumbles and falls.

[A] warmly stirring romantic maelstrom of five multigenerational libidos let loose at a lakeside vacation site.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

The film unfolds with cold, Chabrolian detachment and quietly builds to a coolly satisfying denouement that leaves everyone involved -- including the audience -- second-guessing everything that's come before.

The resulting cinematic chimera isn't remarkably pretty, but it's pretty remarkable.

As twisted and steamy a psychological thriller as you could hope to find, provided you're not put off by the pedophilia coursing through this intriguing romantic roundelay.

This blunt and methodical chamber-piece thriller, filled with deceptively lazy afternoons, has the seductive and flinty heart of a Ruth Rendell novel.

The actors rise to the challenge of Nocke's tricky, high-flown script, and Krohmer meets them there.

Summer '04 more than confirms the promise of young Teuton helmer Stefan Krohmer.

A rare thing: a successfully asymmetrical drama.

NewsBlaze

More in the nature of audience eavesdropping on some scandalous neighbors than gripping or meaningful storytelling, the film is wracked with superficial, amoral characters and petty, hand wringing sordid emotional preoccupations and obsessions.

All I know is, I didn't buy it. It didn't scan. And I'm sorry it didn't, because Summer '04 offers much to admire and a few things to fear.

Although intelligent and insightful, Summer '04 is also more than just a little bit dull.

Summer '04 is so plainly the product of meticulous forethought that the shooting script might have been etched on marble slabs.
