“Audition” consists of two short films that were released together as one feature film. The first segment “If there were no music” features a short anecdotal plot about two young musicians from rival brass bands. Both young men would rather watch a motorcycle race than play a concert with their bands.
The second segment called “The Audition/Talent Competition” is a fake documentary about an audition at the popular Czechoslovak theatre The Semafor (The Traffic-light). This simple story introduces a young pedicurist who wants to leave work so that she can audition. To solve her problem, she pretends that she’s been called to attend a trial.
