It's the little things that matter
3 May 2019 | by chruebertSee all my reviews

With Summer Survivors Lithuania showed us all how well a social drama can look like and how little we need to be filled with information, in order to understand and enjoy a movie. It is a experience that does not rely on massive introduction and build up of story, rather the vivid characters deliver a reality check about acceptance and the sheer helplessness in terms of mental illness. The movie felt never like drifting off from it's premise and i had the feeling that every little conversation was a small story of itself dealing with other aspects of the society. I admire the choice of the ambiente, colouring and sound constantly underlining the moment, but the movie never feels like having gap filler scenes nor being rushed. The movie had it's own subtile humour to catch our attention, but let go of it in the right moment. The actors did a wonderful job so it never shined through it is a work of fiction. I'd challenge anyone getting expelled from the description of it to go and watch it.
