Audience Reviews for Ivan Passer: Intimate Lighting

  • Jul 07, 2014
    Ah, those Sundays! Among all the films of the irreverent Czech cinematic movement, among all the politically outspoken pieces of social and governmental controversy, anarchich feminism and experimental violence, a simple-minded, light-hearted, highly accessible piece of Czech conventional comedy can be found. And it is truly a delight. The whole film is shot with such care and naturalism that the viewer becomes the visitor: attending the villa funerals, playing musical instruments with the small orchestra, throwing food at the other guests, laughing with the children, getting drunk, walking through fields, chatting, and the most important thing of all, snooping through the door cracks to hear people snoring at midnight, especially "beautiful women". If you asked me what is it that makes this film so special, I would say nothing at all... and that's precisely what makes it special. Simplicity is rarely so charming, the collective array of characters so llikeable, and the kids so funny and adorable (children in general are a delight in the Czech New Wave!) So, it would be a mistake to approach Passer's celebration with the expectations that the New Wave could have implanted in his/her brain beforehand; whenever you're facing a rainy summer night or are looking for something little with a big heart, you can play with this boy anyday. A simple review for a simple film. 81/100
