Autobiographical in nature, the story is told from the perspective of six-year-old Frida (Laia Artigas) who is sent to live with her aunt Marga (Bruna Cusí), uncle Esteve (David Verdaguer) and cousin Anna (Paula Robles) in the Catalonian countryside after the death of her mother. While there, she finds it difficult to adapt to the changes in her life and becomes a quiet observer to everything happening around her. Currently, Summer 1993 has a perfect 100 percent fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes. It’s a beautiful and poetic gem that movie lovers need to see. Simón has written an emotionally resonant narrative that is quiet in its delivery but speaks volumes on the innocence and imagination of a child and her desire for normalcy.
