Two dull people have a dull love affair in "Summertime," a French drama that drags on like an August afternoon.RogerEbert.comJuly 22, 2016
What makes Summertime really refreshing is that it doesn't treat its central romance as anything but wholly normal, despite the attitude of other characters, or indeed, the tenor of the time in which it is set.New York TimesJuly 21, 2016

The moderate highs and lows of Delphine and Carole's may not go down as a classic love story. But the sincerity of its actresses (including Noémie Lvovsky as Delphine's quietly observant, unyielding mother) keeps you fully invested in their journey.JunkeeNovember 15, 2016
