5 February 2008 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Simplicity. This is something that most of the films lack, and a very few contain thoroughly. I saw SUMMER OF THE COLT on T.V and loved it despite of its bad English dubbing.

This movie reminded me of my childhood days when we kids used to visit Grandpa's home in villege on summer vacations. This movie shows all the same.. nothing very important happens but the kids just end up learning something about life and love. As simple as that.

The performances are fine, especially Alexandra London Thompson is remarkable. I almost fell in love with her. Nice photography, sweet background score.. it's all there. I think this movie is underrated here.. and that's what made me write this comment. Watch it if you have chance, it's really lovely.
