Summer Storm highlights the emotional confusion of young people at the threshold of adulthood. - Tobi. There's nothing else about Tobi that suggests a rounded character. Bolstering the film’s authenticity is the dazzling characterization of Tobi by award-winning young Robert Stadlober (Best Leading Actor at the Montreal Film Festival, 2001). My best example? However one thing my girlfriend and I have 100% agreed on is our planned trip to Maui. I hated how it turned out..... ***** Geraldine A July 24, 2006

It's an affable enough coming-of-age movie centred on Tobi (Robert Stadlober), who is struggling with his growing feelings for best friend and rowing team-mate Achim (Kostja Ullman).

German movie, with cute humour, it just made me go 'aww' at the end haha. Hey, maybe I'll bring a CD of Summer Storm with us on the trip! The plot boiled over shortly after the tents were pitched. Meanwhile, Sandra's best friend (Anke) makes a run at Tobi, who does his best to fend her off. ", Chicago Tribune: "Summer Storm is a contemporary teen summer romance with a modern sexual twist..." "...believable characters...", Kabeleins.de: "...beautifully produced and very authentically played...", Time Out London: "...the story's main strength lies in its characters...", Los Angeles Times: "..Kreuzpaintner displays a natural gift with actors and a clarity in storytelling that result in a fresh take on what otherwise might have been a familiar coming-of-age story. The surprise comes later in the film, when Achim does not reciprocate Tobi's attempted kiss. One summer at rowing camp, their masculine bonds are threatened by the seductive intrusion of the fairer sex. There really isn't anything "wrong" with this movie. Great film, great acting.

"Beautiful Thing" and "Get Real" are better films dealing with similiar issues. What ensues is Tobi's slow and tortured struggle to find himself, as he befriends an all-gay rowing team and begins to come to terms with the realisation that he'll never win Achim over 'that way'.

Bavaria Film International, Claussen + Wobke, Deutsche Columbia. It's also burdened by clichés such as "Do you want to keep living a lie?"

And what we film-goers sometimes forget is that, in the country of origin, the movie is pretty run-of-the-mill. Mostly they gab about it, and all the talk, if not the rowing, takes them in circles.
