  1. Riddle, van, stellar's rating of the film A Blonde in Love

    KFF 2018. Sensational. Harmonious composition of social, political satire and romantic desires. Illusionistic at times yet remains realistic in its narrative, an essential piece of Czechoslovakian Cinema !

  2. josé neves's rating of the film A Blonde in Love

    35mm, rewatched. It's really wonderful how Forman captures the truth of faces, either of extras either of the main characters, and the ball's long sequence is a treaty in how to frame faces by a perspective of a human expression documentation, being less important the spatiality of the place. A key film in the way how the "new cinemas" captured human sadness and moralistic banality, and its drift with no way out.

  4. Duncan Gray's rating of the film A Blonde in Love

    In a Communist factory backwater where there are 16 women for each man, can beggars be choosers? Or is loneliness not only inevitable, but in some ways preferable? Before the show, Forman's screenwriter told the crowd that a comedy was easier to get past the censors—and this one does indeed have an eye for its homeland's absurdity. Its big scenes are all too long and it only makes it to 80 minutes. But it's a gem.

  6. Graf von Zahl's rating of the film A Blonde in Love

    Probably bit exotic for someone not too familiar with this part of Europe.

  7. Levi Miah's rating of the film A Blonde in Love

    The strangest mix of melancholic sweetness, wrapped in a patriarchal, predatorial shell. Straight realism, uncomfortably so at times. The title dictates romance but the reality refuses it. Moments of striking images.

  8. Katherine Lo's rating of the film A Blonde in Love

    Truly enjoyed Forman's wittily observant ways in painting his characters. Also appreciated those still shots with seemingly organic human interactions and dialogues. He told a very simple story in a rather endearing yet impactful way. It's crazy to think how relatable this film still is 50 odd years on, as it reflects the social construct then, we see that young women are still as vulnerable as ever.

  9. Dan and Val Freeman's rating of the film A Blonde in Love

    A simple story told in a straightforward way ... but no less powerful for that.

  10. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film A Blonde in Love

    A wonderful mix of comedy and borderline-tragedy, this Milos Forman film feels like a forerunner to various "teen" movies of the '70s and '80s, although it has more tumultuous emotional content to mine. Worth seeking out.

  11. Superfrog's rating of the film A Blonde in Love

    There is definite style and very clever filmaking but the plot really lack for my enjoyment.

  12. Nicolas Pierce's rating of the film A Blonde in Love

    This is a wonderful movie. Droll and touching in equal measure.

  13. Harry's rating of the film A Blonde in Love

    A subtle gem. Full of endearing mundanity and tender, sorrowful moments. Very fitting that Andula’s story should go full circle. Some fabulous use of music too.

  14. Draughtsman Without Contract's rating of the film A Blonde in Love

    Wittily observant and melancholically droll. Just as the economic system was expected to grind on forever, so was a ritual of asymmetric expectation and exploitation between young men and young women. The disruption to that ritual is comic gold as well as wistfully sad but one also has just the feeling that having disrupted it once, our heroine may just do so again.

  15. Pango's rating of the film A Blonde in Love

    Simple but full of humanity, humour, and honestly.

  16. 'king Harold's rating of the film A Blonde in Love

    ‘A blonde’ , not a woman, that’s how they were referred to back in the day. But her story is so full of poignant, so full of humanity, even the minor characters are given life- the married man at the drink who can’t go through with adultery despite being completely pissed, you just know he is miserable at home, his ring, kicked around the dance floor, becomes a poignant metaphor for the whole film.

  20. Alvise Narduzzi's rating of the film A Blonde in Love

    Rendere ricca una storia semplice è cosa per pochi, ma Forman tra quei pochi ha un posto assicurato. Andula somiglia veramente ad una chitarra dipinta da Picasso, mentre con ingenuità si rende protagonista di un film che riesce ad essere attuale anche oggi, mezzo secolo dopo la sua realizzazione. La regia copre con un velo ironico una pellicola di per sé un pò triste, ma che lascia una gran gioia agli occhi.

  21. Johnny Seeker's rating of the film A Blonde in Love

    My first Czech film. Charming!

  22. FISCHER's rating of the film A Blonde in Love

    Une des facettes du célèbre cinéma tchèque avant son "effacement" de la scène internationale, à la fin le merveilleux printemps de Prague, après l'invasion soviétique... www.cinefiches.com

  23. Wee Hunk's rating of the film A Blonde in Love

    The humiliations of love. Especially young love, because it's fickle. I like the fact that the boy and the mother start off with "Come here. I won't bite." The fighting between the mother and father was quite well written.

  24. ruzica's rating of the film A Blonde in Love

    Perfectly shows how young girls can be deluded. But utterly, everyone is just in search of happiness, honesty and little love.
