    An observant and sensitively played drama about adolescent sexuality, unrequited love and heartbreak.
  2. Kreuzpaintner displays a natural gift with actors and a clarity in storytelling that result in a fresh take on what otherwise might have been a familiar coming-of-age story.

    A lovely wallow in the sweaty pains and joys of mostly gay adolescent love.

    Summer Storm is director/co-writer Marco Kreuzpaintner's entry into the "I'm not gay but my boyfriend is" genre.

    It just grows darker and broodier as Stadlober grapples with coming out. That's not an easy thing, but someone should tell the poor guy that being gay doesn't have to mean being this lame.
  7. 25
    An uninspired gay coming-of-age import from Germany.

    A great setting, sympathetic actors, surprising plot-twists and a topic that you (sadly) only rarely see in modern films. I enjoyed every minute of it! Expand
