Audience Reviews for Capricious Summer

  • Jul 03, 2014
    Being the first <b>light</b> disappointment I have with this cinema trend, <i>Capricious Summer</i> is an extremely simple story consisting more in anecdotes than in a real plot by Jirí Menzel which, if it wasn't for its use of Eastmancolor, could be easily confused with one of his earliest films instead of being "post-<i>Closely-Watched-Trains</i>". Is it completely devoid of all characteristic trademarks? Fortunately, it isn't. Random banal philosophizing and some irreverent playfulness make this film worth watching for avid followers of the Czech New Wave, which is not significantly representative of its revolutionary implications, but yet has Menzel's exploratory sexual component as its ingredient with some ironic remarks made during the final scenes of the ending. 73/100

    Three middle aged friends become infatuated with the same woman, a beautiful young traveling magician's assistant. Underacted chaste Czech sex comedy, made for another place and time
