Trivia

This movie and the later English film of the same name Alive and Kicking (1996) were made and released only about three years apart. During the early 1970s, when the reunion characters in this movie actually went to Camp Tamakwa in 1972, two other movies of the same "Indian Summer" title were also made and released about three years apart, in 1970 and 1973, they being Bablje ljeto (1970) ("Indian Summer") and Siromashko lyato (1973) ("Indian Summer").

real good feel good
27 September 1998 | by Sunny-22See all my reviews

Great cast, good acting. Its a real video-movie. Play it when you are feeling sad, missing the good old days. This movie makes you realize that these days aren't that good after all. But don't expect a movie with a great story. It's just funny and entertaining. Laugh and cry if you want. Because you will if you open your heart to this Indian Summer
