Summer 1993 is an emotional movie about six-year-old Frida who moves in with her relatives in Catalan following the death of both parents. As the title suggests, it's set in the summer of 1993.
The pace is slow but there is a sparkle of awesomeness from the two main child actors. The storyline isn't overly complex either – Frida is dealing with grief naturally, jealousy of her new step-sister and the slower pace away from Barcelona.
The story is based on the director, Carla Simon Pipo's autobiography. The tension slowly creeps up on you and then it's all over in a burst. This film might be underwhelming for some viewers to enjoy but it provides an evocative depiction of childhood. It won Best First Feature at a recent Berlinale.
