Synopsis:
Alexander (Ilja Monti) auditions at a prestigious Berlin music school. The vote is split, but Anna Bronsky (Nina Hoss) insists she can train him. Her obsessive quest begins to draw out of him the unique sound she believes he possessed in his audition. However, Alexander does not respond well to her increasingly strict and regimented approach. She is also invited to join a quintet, but is reluctant to perform in concert and her eventual participation leads to an exceptionally embarrassing experience. Anna is pushed over the edge and doubles down on Alexander. Come the day of his exam, events take a tragic turn.

Unusual - The Audition review by SB

Spoiler Alert
02/12/2022

Nina Hoss is good as the somewhat unbalanced woman of a certain age who is obsessive, about daily life and about the violin, which she teaches. She is also sexually demanding, carrying on an affair with a colleague whilst being both warm and distant with her husband, who spends most the film looking perplexed and more interested in making instruments. Her relationships with her pupil and her son are entangled and unhealthy. The ending is a bit unconvincing but opens another window into this woman's very unhappy mind. Set in Germany but with much of the dialogue in French (English subtitles).
