After gradually with inventories exhausted the good mood turn, Monika and Harry returned to Stockholm, where Harry’s Aunt (Dagmar Ebbesen), thankfully, that the young couple can marry. While Harry fortbildet next to the work to be an engineer, there is so very Monika can not handle in the confines of the barren and civic life. After the birth of her daughter, she buries itself first in its witty, melancholy mood, so the aunt takes care of the baby, and then it begins again to hang around with men … The very young couple with so different personalities and needs, early parenthood, the material poverty and the social constraints – in strong, intense pictures here a portrait of a love of drawing, which breaks inevitably to the demands of everyday life. Summer with Monika, who is a carefree summer as a strong contrast against this failure, renounces obvious moralizing and focuses on the sensations and movements of its two main characters in their dense universe, which will prove ultimately to be too narrow to permanently social space to exist. Although the film clearly comes along in the spirit of its date, the themes of the couple appear unchanged but to date, so this early Bergman plant could almost make a lesson about the pitfalls of young love.

  In the Anatolian province begin the school holidays, and the focus of the events move from three people of different generations: the young Ali will steal his textbook, he back is essential to his adult brother Veysel confesses his parents that he wants to stop the military academy early Hasan and her uncle wants to unravel the mystery of the beloved of her father. Small everyday problems, which are directed by Seyfi Teoman charged with subtle drama. Focal point of the Summer Book is the patriarchal father Mustafa (Osman Inan), indicating in his family for the tone and passes over their wishes and needs. His nine-year son Ali (Tayfun Günay) wins the extent to feel that he is not his school holidays as other children can spend playing, but he is to acquire the business skills of his father. So he is a large pack of chewing gum Mustafa pressed in the hand, which he will sell at a profit. A big task for a young boy who he has not grown. His older brother, Veysel (Harun Özüağ goes) there is hardly better, for he has finally decided not to offer parents the forehead and left the military academy, which he visits only at the request of the father. This is for but never in question because he would have to pay a high transfer fee, it also seems not the wish of the son to start a course in economics in Istanbul, a promising future. As an intermediary occurs repeatedly uncle Hasan (Taner Birsel on), but who can arrange for his little nephew. Only when Mustafa after a brain hemorrhage in a coma, the situation seems to be better for his sons, but now it’s uncle Hasan, who is following in the footsteps of his brother. Mrs. Mustafa Güler (Ayten Tökün) plays at all, only a minor role occur, as in the whole movie hardly any women in appearance. She leads a life in the shadows of her husband and is only responsible for the care of children and the household, without representation. Sun Güler is seen continually in the process, how she cooks, cleans, or beds hits. The coma of her husband eventually takes them to tell her brother of her long-standing presumption that Mustafa must have a mistress. Uncle Hasan sets out to search for that ominous lover, while Veysel still quarrels with the military academy and Ali difficulties with chewing gum sales does. The new Turkish cinema comes out with a few words, and instead lets the images speak and act. While in autumn – Sonbahar, a film by Özcan Alper, almost unbearable, it is possible Seyfi Teoman with his debut feature film extremely well to combine these two elements. This is mainly due to the camera work, which is always at a safe distance from the protagonists, and yet builds a close personal contact. She works almost documentary, not gloss over the moment but emphasizes the isolation of the figures. As the small Ali alone through the streets wanders and tries, with his annoying classmates to deal and sell its gum will or shy as Veysel and nonverbally with a woman flirting until it walks away with her husband is captured so profoundly, emotionally, that for all the words are unnecessary and yet everything is said. As a vast acting talent to Tayfun Günay turns in the role of Ali, who plays with incredible authenticity and seriousness of the figure of the lost boys, yet strong, that it is breathtaking. Finally, the film still presents as a closed circle, because he listens to exactly how it started. Mirror image of the opening scenes resume and emphasize that the cycle of everyday life. Summer Book is not a film that is imprinted with loud sounds into memory, but by the “dramatic potential of the non-dramatic moments in life,” reported. (Silvy Pommerenke)
