Netflix new Italian show “summertime” review

Premiered on Netflix on the 29th of April 2020., Summertime takes us on a journey of young love in a small town on the Adriatic coast one perfect summer.  

With the Summer season and its pleasures at the peak; Summer, a high school senior is about to get jammed with tourists. With her best friends Edo and Sofia, the trio is in everything together, be it cheating on an English test or planning a life post-school. Summer cannot wait to travel out and visit new places but responsibilities at home tie her up.

Long story cut short, Summer bumps into Ale; a hotshot who himself is trying to deal with his family issues, and then all together into the pool. That is when the chemistry starts and the two fall in love.

Needless to say, Summertime does not have the most original plot and does give a hint of cliché high school romance. That does make it seem like a super long and mundane show with each passing episode which in itself is forty minutes long, each.

The final misunderstanding that for not a very good reason stretches across four episodes really feels like an unnecessary drag. For those looking for something spicy, unique, exciting, gripping; this might not be something they would like to try.

However, it won’t be completely wrong to say that it is one show that will not weigh you down. So, for a breezy summer; Summertime is a breezy show one wouldn’t mind watching.
