Its coming-of-age yarn goes nowhere beyond inevitably out of a closet.
It's sunny and frothy, with odd laugh-out-loud moments.
This gay coming-of-age film from Germany ultimately has few original aspects, but it is an intelligently wrought drama that makes it a respectable entry in the genre.
Stadlober, a young Austrian actor cast in the leading role, is charming enough to survive most of the movie's labored attempts to lighten up.
While it has little in it that hasn't been covered by other coming-out movies, it's pleasant enough.
Kreutzpainter limns his multifarious characters with an amiable, unforced humor and an authentic feel for the ways in which good kids respond to peer pressure with less-than-admirable behavior.
Don't let the trailer mislead you. Summer Storm is not some sort of supersexy European art film. It's kids being kids, and you've outgrown summer camp.
Kreuzpaintner junks up this simple gay coming-of-age story with too many subplots and sitcomlike situations.
There are at least a couple of disparate movies fighting for control in Summer Storm.
Humor, toned bods, a mellow soundtrack and far too much predictability are the highlights and lowlight of Summer Storm.
Recommended for its endearing performances, captivating locations and a poppy soundtrack that amiably underscores the bubbly sensuality of a summer in the sun.
'Coming out' films are now rituals, patterned like dances, and Marco Kreuzpaintner's Summer Storm hits its generic marks.
This sweet gay German film has some great music and some really tender moments.
I hate romance movies. BUT I love gay romance. I have no idea why and so in July of 2008 I just watched a lot of gay romance movies because they are so damn awesome. They are the only kind of romance movies in which I want the characters to get together. So anyway, although the main guy was ugly and looked like Brad Greenquist (Pascal from Pet Sematary) I still enjoyed it. For some reason in every gay movie I watched one of the guys would be extremely ugly and the other... not. Um... so it was kind of funny and ok, but I wanted Tobi and Achim to get together (like I said I always want happy endings in gay romance and unhappy endings in hetero romance, and I'm a straight female... go figure).
Great movie! Great music.
Irritatingly simple-minded gay coming-of-age story.
