The film reaches a point of high drama, for sure, but when Edith Piaf's voice rises over the final minutes, the gothic climax curls into a wicked grin.

...there's little doubt that the film is occasionally just a little too uneventful for its own good.

Pawlikowski does such a great job of establishing a sense of youthful carelessness that we're sucked into Mona's summer adventure.

Torrid eroticism tinged by a sense of menace . . . circles around its complex, conflicted characters before plunging into their dark feelings and hidden half-truths.

Pawel Pawlikowski's open and poetic new film proves without a shadow of a doubt that his stunning "Last Resort" from 2000 was no fluke.

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.

Coupled with...picturesque cinematography, Press and Blunt's natural performances communicate a palpable sense of the summer's heat and the hazy days of adolescence and ardor.

My Summer of Love is one of those promising little gems that comes along and gets lost in the hype generated by Hollywood's flood of blockbusters.

When compared with most of what passes for honest teen drama these days, My Summer of Love is a real reprieve.

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.

As coming-of-age stories go, My Summer Of Love is far more provocative and mysterious than most.

It is, in short, a very good coming-of-age story of love and obsession, but not a remarkable one.
