Karlovy Vary 2016: Eva Nová review

8 July 2016 7:07 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ "Everyone says: 'Less emotion, less emotion.' How can anyone act without emotion?" So complains the eponymous veteran actress in Slovakian drama Eva Nová. She's lamenting her plight; unemployed and at the mercy of modern, young directors and contemporary conventions towards minimalism. The first interesting thing about this exchange is her denial of the real reason for her professional decline - years spent soused have done infinitely more damage than her acting style.
