wonderful music is a background for passions
12 December 1998 | by Don GuanSee all my reviews

I like the films directed by Milos Forman.This picture is not an exception.It is considered by me to be more an amateur movie than a professional one but it does not mean any negative.The researched theme is really interesting : the different kinds of competition, rivals, all the "great expectations" tied with awaiting of prices.The vocal competition lets us see who is really talent and who is simply singing songs, making the different sounds.If you like czech rock'n'roll , twist you will be completely satisfied. After having seen "Konkurs" we can not wait anything else except "Hair".To my mind these two films are to be seen together.
