A young man's summer - a character study
1 January 2009 | by tpolakov-2See all my reviews

Considered one of the first movies of the Czechoslovakian new wave of the 60's, the movie depicts a youngster's summer with romance, work and all the stuff around. It shows the curiosity of the young, the discovery of the world around us, the search for love and other things worth searching for. It even throws in a bit of a social study by comparing the village and the town society. Although some of the aspects of it have not aged well (at least for me), the main reason to see this movie is the very strange but wonderful atmosphere of exploration. When watching it, I sometimes felt like being the main character's photo-camera with an insatiable desire to capture moments/images - to let them impact the observer and create emotions through beauty and purity. So, at the end, it is the purity of the young (uninfluenced) eye (both the main character's and I presume the filmmakers') that creates almost a magical experience of going back in time. Worth watching !
