Not so engaging, but positively gives hope to young people
19 September 2008 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film is about a meeting of two teenage friends in a forest. They are great friends until one confesses his feeling for the other.

"Summer" is a low budget short. It features two young mates messing around in the forest. They devised a game of catching falling leaves, which involves a lot of physical contact. One thing led to another, and Leung confessed his feelings to Will. It is a rather standard plot, and it is not particularly engaging either. In fact, I found "Summer" rather boring. I have to point out though, the positivity of the ending is nice and certainly welcomed. It gives young people hope that things are not necessarily bad after coming out.
