In Carla Simón’s celebrated film SUMMER 1993, a young orphan goes to live with her uncle’s family in the Catalan province and in the process struggles to fit in her new surroundings. Spain’s submission to the 2018 Oscars.
In Carla Simón’s touching autobiographical film, six-year-old Frida looks on in silence as the last objects from her recently deceased mother’s apartment in Barcelona are placed in boxes. Although her aunt, uncle, and younger cousin Anna welcome her with open arms, it’s only very slowly that Frida begins to get used to her new home in the countryside. Punctuated by moments of youthful exuberance and mature ruminations, this coming of age drama, set amongst summery hues, is an extraordinarily moving snapshot of being a child in an adult world, anchored by flawless performances by its two young stars.
“An extraordinary and beautiful work of grief and memory.” – Village Voice
“Simon’s debut is both tender and determined as it relates a tale of a young orphan trying to fit in with a new family.” – Screen International
“Striking a careful balance between narrative and atmosphere, the writer-director paints a vivid portrait of a light-filled summer when a little girl has to face the loss of her mother and integration into a new nuclear family” – Variety
“Summer 1993 stands out for its subtle, touching, but never sentimentalist approach to this exceedingly sensitive theme, the childhood apprehension of personal tragedy..” – Film Comment Magazine
