Storyline

Dino is forty years old and an immense love for Anna, who is unable to touch and consume in an embrace. Anesthetist by day, compulsive lover at night, seeking satisfaction with prostitutes and swingers. The early death of his brother and mother left him deeply marked and lead to sexual addiction. Rejected the loving care and the gentle advances of Anna, Dino recovers and meets the former partner's, asking them to get back with her or appagarne the pleasure he denies. Dismissed or looked with compassion, the man asks Anna to find a passionate lover. Anna, first reluctant, he ends up giving, while doing a night of sex with a stranger. But the feeling he has for Dino is more powerful than any physical pleasure and frustration. Return home but maybe for her and Dino is really too late to start. Written by lament

Worst Italian (french?) movie of last year
30 May 2013 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Two words would suffice for this review if not for IMDb's rules to not publish articles with less than 10 lines of text: SIMPLY UNWATCHABLE. Being a movie buff I happen to see a lot of films, and here and there a bad one can slip in. But here we aren't talking simply about a bad movie. Forget the money, you'll be asking back for the time you've wasted watching this piece of trash. The film-maker should have realized that staring at a white wall for 3 months would have been more productive than making this. You'll have way more fun reading this review than watching this sorry excuse of a film... isn't that saying a whole lot? Don't even get me started on "actress" (yes, the brackets are absolutely necessary) Isabella Ferrari... why is she on video instead of, say, my grandma? I bet you she'd be more talented than Ferrari is (shame about that name being shared with the legendary super-cars maker), not a difficult task by all means of course. I hear the DVD is coming out soon, well don't you DARE making the mistake of renting it (I feel better knowing there's no chance anyone would even consider buying "E la chiamano estate" to add to their movie collection) and you'll thanks me later! Title means "And they call it summer", well I think a more apt title would have been "And they call this a movie?!". Do yourself and the films industry a favor: Avoid at all costs!!!
