Another bastard of the 60's new wave
12 March 2009 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Miloš is a great director, and I have a lot of respect for him. Now that that has been said, I must say that this movie was a big disappointment to me.

I've never understood the whole new wave concept... I don't care if it's Godard or Miloš or whoever, for me it seems just pointless. This movie has all the typical new wave aspects: an almost non-existent storyline, which evolves slowly enough to make Ozu's movies look like damn express trains, the whole point of the movie (describing the common life of amateur musicians with more ambition than skill) is an interesting one, but to me the handling of the subject was just way too shallow (especially when taking to consideration Forman's cinematic abilities).

So all in all, the movie had some highlights that kept me interested for the first 30 minutes or so, but after that, when I realized that the storyline wasn't going to evolve anywhere from there, I simply decided not to waste any more of my time with this.
