"This film is a true CineVision. The view through the camcorder immediately connects us emotionally to father and daughter and their loving relationship. This film manages to take us on a holiday that we can all identify with. We smell the air, taste the sea, feel the heat on our skin, feel the chlorine in our eyes. The music is the link between future and past. With humor, love and lightness we are drawn to our memories even when they leave us paralyzed. A vacation that was so beautiful for Sophie - one that should never end, but will forever remain a painful memory to her. Paul Mescal & Frankie Corio's brilliant acting and the very warm human eye on a very difficult subject shows us a great visionary performance by Charlotte Wells. This is cinema! And we can't wait to see more of this talented director and give the award to AFTERSUN with the greatest joy and pride!"
