Critic Reviews for Summer of 85

All Critics (49) | Top Critics (13) | Fresh (39) | Rotten (10)

  • Summer of 85 might find Ozon at his briskest and breeziest, but as a specifically gay loss-of-innocence parable, it shoulders an unspoken weight.

    November 18, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Ozon first read Chambers's novel as a teenager and his adaptation blends the prickly joy of that first encounter with the stylistic confidence of a film-maker revisiting an old flame.

    October 25, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • What follows is a standard teenage romance, stylishly mounted and sensitively played.

    October 24, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A holiday romance perfect for the dark nights with the added bonus of a flashback structure that builds genuine intrigue into the outcome. It also includes a use of Rod Stewart's 'Sailing' that guarantees its place on your 2020 movie playlist.

    October 23, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Watchable if not especially profound...

    October 23, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The tone is oddly vanilla all round, in the end just one more film ticked off for Ozon.
