#44: Taking Off (1971)Posted: February 22, 2012 | |

Movie #44 – 21 February 2012
Taking Off (USA – 1971) Directed by Milos Forman
Funny comedy by Milos Forman in his (if I am not mistaken) first American film. The movie is very dated even if some moments, as well as provocative, are also quite intense and handled very well without over moralising this family tragedy. Definitely not banal. A good movie, effective, semi-unknown and unexpected. The ‘joint’ group scene is hilarious. Recommended.
