International Panorama:

Anna, a violin teacher at a Berlin music school promotes the admission of a pupil against the will of her colleagues.

In Detail

Anna detects a remarkable talent in her student Alexander. Increasingly committed to preparing him for an upcoming audition, as well as her own other, extra-curricular interests, she neglects both her son and her husband in the process and as the day of the audition approaches, the pressure mounts.

Nina Hoss is magnificent as Anna revealing layers of complicated emotions lurking under her surface reserve. Both serene and subversive, immaculately composed and backed by a stirring Bach soundtrack, The Audition is a gripping, distinctive spin on the demanding teacher/gifted student narrative that forces you to keep asking questions until its bracing final moments.
