Enjoyable Czechoslovakian New Wave
6 December 2012 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

11 years before making the masterpiece One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest in Hollywood, Milos Forman lived still in the Czechoslovakia making Audition in 1963, a movie that launched what became known as the Czech New Wave. The movie was originally made as to two shorts, but released as one film. The style is something between the Italian neorealism and the French nouvelle vague, and in this movie you can certainly see those influences. There is no big storyline, actors are amateurs and the style is very documentary.

The film is all about little things in life we might all have come across: a girl who has a bit of a stage fright, another girl who dreams to get a job from a theater, a boy who's too lazy to get himself regularly to the rehearsal of the local wind band. These things do not create any big drama into the movie, but when combined with the documentary style, they bring a great feeling of life into the screen. And that is maybe the best thing films can offer. This is also my answer to all of those people who dislike movies without a clear plot (and might dislike new wave films).

Audition is an interesting peak into the film of Czechoslovakia in the 60's. Although it doesn't leave you with a big "WOW!", it is still a very enjoyable film.
