Summer Storm

2

This melodramatic coming-out yarn unfolds at a summer rowing camp in Germany, where teen Tobi gets the hots for best friend and teammate Achim. Offering lessons in sexual tolerance and the importance of listening to your heart, Summer Storm is pure wish-fulfilment... with lots of shots of buff, shirtless male teens indulging in enthusiastic `horseplay'. Vacuous and tedious, it even ends with a tepid cover version of `Go West' playing over the calculatedly uplifting climax.
