Das Vorspiel

Critics Consensus

It may occasionally veer into discordant territory, but The Audition remains a darkly illuminating character study led by a forceful turn from Nina Hoss.

Critic Reviews for The Audition (Das Vorspiel)

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (26) | Rotten (7)

  • "The Audition" may not have the same lingering resonance, but like those earlier pictures, it's a showcase for a performer who erases the distinction between impeccable technique and raw feeling.

  • Eventually, these feelings spin the film's main character out-of-control into a truly baffling conclusion that feels neither right nor earned.

    June 26, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • A treat that becomes a chilling enthrallment, one of those closely observed dramas you love -- for its intimacy, calm authority and mystery -- even before you begin to get what it's really about.

    June 25, 2020 | Full Review…

    June 25, 2020 | Full Review…
  • With great clarity, the film conveys how discipline can be directed both inward and outward.

    June 23, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Weisse's gripping, cool-blooded drama upends all manner of inspirational-educator clichés.
