      Carson Lund Slant Magazine That Kind of Summer never quite resolves into any one stance on its subjects, an equanimity thats to its credit. Rated: 3/4 Feb 17, 2022 Full Review Peter Debruge Variety Defiantly unconventional Canadian director Côté’s latest wants to bring sexy back to Quebecois cinema, but his languid portrait of three so-called hypersexuals is so hyper-respectful, it borders on boring. Feb 16, 2022 Full Review Wendy Ide Screen International That Kind Of Summer is talky, shapeless and baggy; it takes a rather long time to leave its central characters touched, but essentially unchanged and, in some cases, not satisfyingly explored. Feb 15, 2022 Full Review Stephanie Bunbury Deadline Hollywood Daily ote is a prankster at heart. Perhaps he didn’t want to tell us anything. Perhaps he just wanted to get some rude words up on screen. And why not? That Kind of Summer is certainly entertaining. It doesn’t need to be anything else. Sep 19, 2023 Full Review Soham Gadre Film Inquiry Côte’s film is an empathetic examination of the thorns of sexual desire. It slowly blunts the sharp ends but doesn’t do so before inflicting the realities onto the audience as a means of understanding his characters better. Jan 28, 2023 Full Review Diego Batlle Otroscines.com Perturbing and disconcerting, almost intolerable in some of its scenes, I initially rejected Côté's story, but with the passage of time, it transformed into something much more interesting and admittedly, even fascinating.
