2018 Cannes Critics’ Panel: Day 3 – Kirill Serebrennikov’s Summer (Leto)

2018 Cannes Critics’ Panel: Day 3 – Kirill Serebrennikov’s Summer (Leto)

Sadly, under house-arrest since post-production, Kirill Serebrennikov, the Russian stage, film director, and theatre designer would have loved the Croisette reaction to Summer (aka Leto). Following in the footsteps of the Un Certain Regard selected The Student (★★★½ – read review), his eighth film is about real-life rock musician Viktor Tsoi.

Just under half of our jury caught the film and it appears that this Soviet rock rebel call to 80s Leningrad is the first gem of the competition.
