Nikita Lavretskij about "Summer" and other films should be watched in August for "Afisha.Daily"
“The main thing worth seeing at the end of summer 2022 on the big screen is the summer of the mid-2000s, which was gently and sensitively captured on magnetic film by 23-year-old Vadim Kostrov from Nizhny Tagil. This is a very slow, plotless movie, similar to midday nap, but in this is its strength: it allows viewers to fully transport themselves to the carefree time of childhood. A traditional country campfire, the first shopping center in your hometown, plucking the strings of the first electric guitar - if you grew up in the 2000s, then you already know what you will see on the screen. This is not encrypted "Mirror" by Tarkovsky, which does not let anyone into the director's memories. Kostrov shoots an extremely clear, transparent film, showing the common childhood of his peers - in it he finds all the answers about simple life happiness. Looks like now is the time for them. The real art is to release a picture in the right place at the right time".
