[6.50/10] Summer of 85 (2020)

Summer of 85 (2020)

Quick Review: One of Ozon's less controversial films, "Summer of 85" might seem like a lightweight queer romance with easy-breezy feel and fresh retro vibe at first, but it grows into a grim story of love, loss, grief, despair and death -- and it's fair to say the director handles the tonal shift of the film rather smoothly, and that combined with the naturalistic acting and truly genuine chemistry between the two male leads make this one an emotional descent into the darkness of sorrow.
