Critic Reviews for Summer Coda

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (3)

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Ultimately, Summer Coda fits the paradigm of a romantic drama.

  • 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.

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.
