HASH(0xb359800c) out of 5 stars offbeat but interesting small movie. Feb. 28 2010
By Frankdecavalcante - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This looks like a low budget version of a classic Russian story. But it has the advantage of a fine cast, interesting story, and assured direction. George Sanders, as ever, is outstanding, and Linda Darnell in her vixen mode, is quite good.

HASH(0xb75dbe28) out of 5 stars Sirk's view of Chekov July 30 2012
By Z. T. Astner - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
A very peculiar film indeed. Chekov's only novel has been set in postrevolutionary Russia, which is surprising enough, but what for me was even more surprising was to see George Sanders in what I beleive must be his best part ever, or at least as good as the one he creates in Rosellini's Viaggio in Italia. The last fifteen minutes of this movie is filled with one great surprise after the other, and even though I wasn't that interested before, I was truly fascinated to see where Sirk and Sanders took me, and how moved I was, finally, by the whole experience of "Summer Storm".

HASH(0xb495a744) out of 5 stars Linda's first real chance to shine Nov. 25 2012
By J. Nixon - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Early Hollywood Sirk film presented Linda Darnell with her first real opportunity to show that she had far more talent than the fluffy girl roles she had been handed up to that point. Unfortunately except for rare occasions like Fallen Angel, Hangover Square and A Letter to Three Wives she didn't get many more chances to shine although she was always excellent with the material provided. Aside from her this has an excellent cast all giving fine performances and many hints of the Sirk touch that would bloom fully a few years on.

HASH(0xb733e24c) out of 5 stars CONSIDER THE FILM NOT THE DIRECTOR Sept. 24 2009
By Olivier Comte - Published on
Format: DVD
Literary adaptations are a dangerous thing. Fortunately, the action takes place in 1918, then 1911.
A drama needs a strong photography, here provided by the great Eugene Schuftan, uncredited because he was not an union member
(Archie Stout not a cinematographer to forget is credited. Now we need a good transfer and VCI is usually to be trusted.
SIRK had escaped the indignity of such shooting titles as STRANGE CONFESSION and GOODBYE MY LOVE.
This is really his film, he wrote the dialogue, with twin credit under the pseudonym of MICHAEL O'HARA, but we are not in a classroom and must forget about the other films because that early (12/1943-1/1944) second US film stands on its own legs.
In 1918, Kharkov, an impoverished aristocrat, EDWARD EVERETT HORTON, tries to have a manuscript published by the newspaper now owned by
ANNA LEE,and confesses that the manuscript was written by GEORGE SANDERS seven years earlier.
Back to 1911 SANDERS, local magistrate, engaged to LEE, desires the ambitious LINDA DARNELL, equally loved by the rich HORTON. DARNELL is soon murdered, after some romantic interludes.
CHARLES HAAS ,overseer of HORTON's estate is sent to Siberia.
And the murderer is: I won't tell you. LEE reads it and takes measures.
It's a brilliantly written and directed drama. Not a flamboyant melodrama which would be inappropriate and would weaken he characters.It only lacks more money.
DARNELL and SANDERS are very good.
We are still waiting for the 3 great SIRK pictures: SHOCKPROOF (Columbia), THE FIRST LEGION (U-A) and THUNDER ON THE HILL (Universal).
SIRK has become a dead idol (better than a living idol, nobody expects the French Inquisition) and it blurs the pleasure of his films.
Everything is now sacred: you can't put down any of his films without getting insulted.
He was a true professional who wouldn't have approved of that cultural fanaticism.
