Trivia

The famous rain scene, so famous that gave the movie its English title, 'Summer rain', was completely improvised. When started pouring and the crew thought they would have to wait until it stopped, director Antonio Banderas decided on the spot to seize the moment and have most of the characters just jumped in the rain and start celebrating.

Suffering to grow
9 December 2006 | by chocopocoSee all my reviews

This movie tells the story of a group of young friends facing the end of their teen years during a fateful summer.Although it is a Spanish film set in the seventies, the topics and the way they are portrayed make it a whole universal experience (I am Spanish but I can't recall any localism of notice). You can tell that this movie has been made with all guts, heart and soul, or passion if you like, it sparkles all over the frame.The suffering and pain of teen years (and the joy of friendship, love and sex) are portrayed in a very poetical way.Both visual and acoustic poetry (the movie is narrated by the character "el garganta" as if reciting a somewhat complex yet beautiful poem). I've got only good things to say about this second directorial effort of Mr Banderas; lush cinematography, good music, nice pacing, and an ensemble cast whose performances shine like gold. This film is a true joy to your senses, brain and soul.
