Audience Reviews for A Summer Story
So true, so sad, beautiful and truthful tale anyone could relate to IF you had a lost love. A story about free will and fate, both battle in this romance drama. Were it for a train schedule, this romantically involved stranger and villager would have married. Who knew? Least of all them.

Highly recommended for romanticist types and those that think fate has everything or nothing to do with living.
For every man and every woman there is that one great love. A love that touches the heart fires the soul and lingers in the memory forever.
