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.

This movie take risks and as result commit mistakes
21 July 2007 | by finitodistampareSee all my reviews

Summer Rain , The English road or as the original title say "El camino de los ingleses " is a movie that takes artistic risks and of course that lead to mistakes . In the good part of things we have very good performances of the cast , great photography and a risky director . The screenplay is not conventional and the movie is almost experimental in parts but ... so what ? I agree with some reviews .Sometimes the narrator or voice over is used to much . But I think this movie don't try to fit in the conventional movie storytelling and it's not looking to be the mtv movie awards new sensation. But it's telling the story of young people in Malaga,Spain in the 70s trying to find their place in their world. I give it 7.
