Movie Review: After the Sun, Director: Charlotte Wells, 2022

A mistaken assumption is that cinema belongs only to huge blockbusters and flying Marvel superheroes. There is still room for a small and intimate cinema in the age of streaming, which also gives room for more intimate stories. Independent films do not manage to reach a large audience like the more commercial ones, but they provide many hours of enjoyment and thought.

Independent film competitions discover great films. The British film "After the Sun" managed to win many awards and gain excellent PR. This is a small film, which deals with a family vacation in Turkey by a father named Callum (Paul Maskell) with an 11-year-old girl named Sophie (Frankie Curio), who sees the memories years later and discovers exciting revelations about her family and comes to surprising insights.

The movie "After the Sun" is a coming-of-age story, not in the classical sense. It is full of insights, amazing photography and exciting moments. He moves between the present and the past and manages to excite every time.

In the movie "After the Sun" you can find all the usual elements of such movies, such as a first kiss, falling in love with someone older and tension between adults and children. However, something deeper emerges beneath the surface, manages to fascinate the viewer and turns "After the Sun" into a cinematic event worth seeing and being moved by in the cinema.
