Notes on a Summer

Notas Sobre un Verano

64th TIFF: Greek Premiere
Marta’s life in Madrid balances between her academic career and her relationship with Leo. However, during her summer vacation at her family’s home, she will encounter her old flame again, and things will turn upside down. An incredible sentimental film that authentically conveys the feeling of summer carefreeness, the sweet irresponsibility of youth (which delights in delaying the transition to the world of steadfast responsibilities), and the feeling of not fully belonging to the world of adults just yet. Among other things, Notes on a Summer is also a bittersweet portrayal of how the principle of pleasure clashes with the principle of reality when we are called upon to mature. Subtly melancholic, sensually captivating, simple yet unpretentious, this cinematic summer will be unforgettable.
