Girl - "femme fatal" in age of about 14 - Ergolina (sumptuous young actress Tatyana Drubich) is absolutely convincing though everything is quite virgin. The hero of the movie - youth 14 years old too - try to understand the nature of Love on the background of real nature as scene is summer camp ("Soviet pioneer's camp" - like scout camp). The action is slow similar to Russian summer itself, but it is advantage here: the psychological effect (empathy) is accelerated and is picked up. Film contains "chapters": from "Sunstroke" in the beginning towards "Education of Feeling" in the end and all these are metaphors of the Love.
