• Ozon first read Chambers's novel as a teenager and his adaptation blends the prickly joy of that first encounter with the stylistic confidence of a film-maker revisiting an old flame.

    Mark Kermode, The Guardian
  • A sweet, gay romance that gradually morphs into something more suspenseful and macabre

    The Daily Telegraph
  • A standard teenage romance, stylishly mounted and sensitively played

    The Times
  • The film is an opportunity to think about yourself, to think about your life, about your love, about your purpose... But mostly I just want people to enjoy this story as much as I did when I first discovered it

    AnOther, Francois Ozon
  • Deftly captures the giddy thrill of first love but also hints that a gut-wrenching tragedy is coming. The result is an incredibly poignant film exploring how love and loss are often horribly intertwined.

    Nick Levine, NME
  • Summer of '85 is a very memorable and charming film about young love. It's a film that will take you back to your first summer love.
