"Intimate Lighting" is a Czech film from the 1950s- 60s that I saw several times and purchased in an old VCR to watch again. I bought this DVD through Amazon so that I can see it once more. Very subtle, funny film--a successful musician (a cellist) returns from the capital to his old home town to play a concert with the local symjphony, and meets old friends who didn't make it and stayed behind. If you can imagine four people playing a string quartet with only one of them really competent, the others of varying ineptitude, and finding it very true-to-life and funny, then you will enjoy this film. The ending, which I won't give away (and it would sound ridiculous if I did) is worth seeing the film for. Especially enjoyable for music lovers and music performers, but with something for everybody--the contrast between his girlfriend/mistress, who comes with him, and the wives of the locals is also very true and funny.
