If you can forgive its clumsy moments, the film exudes a considerable sensual power. Perhaps it's not enough, but it makes me look forward to Gray's next film.

The performances are nice but I don't think there's enough substance there in either of these people and I actually didn't believe the chemistry between them.

In the end it's the love story that counts and it's a beautifully acted and surprisingly touching relationship.

Summer Coda is disappointing, an under-nourished, spasmodically involving melodrama set largely amid the orange groves of Mildura in rural Victoria.

October 21, 2010 Full Review Source:

The themes of loss and moving on are sincere, but way too laboured. Angus Sampson brightens proceedings briefly as one of the fruit pickers -- will somebody please write a comedy lead for this guy? -- but otherwise it's an emotionally flat affair.

he bucolic rhythms of life in the orange grove have a lot of allure. It's Eden on the Murray and if you sit back and let its glories wash over you, you'll find a lot here to like.

Nice scenery, shame about the movie.

Summer Coda, handsomely shot by Greg de Marigny, is a mixture of emotional understatement and pastoral lushness: it looks handsome, but its pace drifts at times.

Summer Coda has a lot to recommend -- and a recommendation this review most surely is -- but its visual splendour can often be in service of a film that doesn't quite have enough to say.

Yet another of those sweet, charming Australian films that will probably vanish quickly from cinemas and be seen by only a handful of film goers. The story is appealing but somewhat predictable, and is far too slowly paced.

I've never harnessed a desire to visit Mildura but that's changed thanks to the beautiful cinematography of Greg De Marigny.

This is an extremely enjoyable film that will seduce audiences with its blend of appealing characters, glorious locations and an intelligent story about loss and love.

Characters are underwritten, its dramatic tension limited to a few moments and its storyline paper thin

More successful as portraying a slice of life than a drama with emotional ballast, Summer Coda is a pleasant enough encounter although never resonates strongly enough to satisfy

Audience Reviews for Summer Coda

Very slow, and at times felt too much so and was tempted to switch it off. But it was worth sticking with. Just.
Nice story about loss and how two people deal with it and how meeting helps them both move on. Not a huge amount of story, but nicely done. One small gripe was Rachael Taylor's American accent - very grating and false. She is a pretty girl with a nice screen presence, though.
