Three Summers was a disappointment. For starters I don’t understand the past, present and future thing… why not just make the third summer the present? There was a severe disconnect in tone and message. At times I felt like it was supposed to be a comedy of sorts with its upbeat jazzy tempo but then nothing was funny and it delved into a weird sexual encounter. Nothing sucked me in. Nothing made me go wow.
