Special To The Daily
NEW YORK-Three new filmsj
from Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia
and France were shown to the
press yesterday at the New York
Film Festival.
Czechoslovakia was represented
by Ivan Passer's "Intimate Light-
ing." This, Passer's first film, is
a light-hearted story of two young
musicians, envious of each other's
social standing. Peter (Zdenek
Blzusek) is a cellist with the
Prague Symphony Orchestra. He
is a bachelor, free, and with a
pretty young woman (Vera Kres-
adlova) in tow. Bambas (Karel
Blazek), who has invited Peter
to play as a soloist with his vil-
lage orchestra, has the security of
a wife, a steady job, and a home.
Peter desires security; Bambas a
"free life."
In the film ,nothing is resolved.
Passer just presents a number of
incidents which occurred during
Peter's two-day stay with Bambas.
The best of these occurs when,
two other . musicians arrive and
when, together, they play a Beet-
hoven string quartet. Two of the
musicians are not up to Beethoven.
and the quartet reverts to a glor-
ious piece of "ordinary language"
coffee-house dialogue.
Visually the film is unexciting.
Passer relies, on well-used cam-
era techniques. (This is a char-
acteristic of the other two films
as well.)
When Bambas says that he is
going to play "Jirovet" at the con-
cert ("he is old and simple, but
has something"), Passer seems to
be giving his own "raison d'etre."
But "old and simple" do not nec-
essarily give us something mean-
ingful. This is the trouble with
"Intimate Lighting": simplicity
has been played up at the expense
of content.
The Yugoslavian film, "Three,"
by Alezsander Petrovic, is the sort
of war film the Czechs would
have made a few years ago. The
usual polemics which accompany
war films have been reduced to
a minimum and in their place an
individual's response to the war is
examined. Milof (Velimir Barta)
sees three deaths, that of a wrong-
ly accused fifth columnist, that
of a friend in the resistance
movement, and that of an extra-
ordinarily attractive girl who is
executed for her association with
the Gestapo. Irrespective of other
relative guilt, these deaths affect
Milof equally. Again the director
plumbs for simplicity. But tb this
reviewer, 19th century "cause and
effect" seems too simple a tool to
analyze the involved and frag-
mented "world" of the war.
Rene Allio's first feature film,
"The Shameless Old Lady," is an
adaptation of a short story by
Brecht. Madame Berthe (Sylvie)

is 70 years old, and in reaction to
her husband's death she starts to,
live it up. Shamelessly she spends
her money, enjoys "modernity,"
department stores, gadgets, etc.
-and makes friends with two ofi
the less desirable villagers (that is
by village standards). The familyj
is shocked. We, too, don't seem
to be able to take wild living from
the old.

Thank you, Michigan Daily, for your fearless
It has long been the bane of Michigan Scientific Introduction Service's
existence to be classed incorrectly with hit-or-miss computer dating deals.
Now, with your timely comments, we can make our differences known
and finally be understood by our public.
1. YES-we do use computers, but they aren't the root of the problem
2. NO-we are not a mail order operation. Our people are personally
selected. Then they are screened and evaluated by trained members
of our staff in addition to completing detailed, confidential ques-
tionnaires about their appearance, attitudes, background, etc. Thus,
your dates are personally checked out for you rather than being
just anyone who happens to make up the right answers on a mail
order form.
3. NO-we do NOT operate on a "one shot," "better luck next time"
basis. Members' names are continually reprocessed and rematched to
give a succession of dates over a long period of time. AND, after
each date, you and your date rate each other so we can constantly
improve the quality of your dates.
4. YES-four successful years in Ann Arbor, constant re-evaluation of our
techniques of assessing what people are like and what they want in
dates, plus an existing file of thousands of sharp people that are
serious dating prospects gives you more than just names on a com-
puter print-out. And, it means that you date the people you have
been wanting to without spending many $ and much time trying to
find and meet them.





5. NOW HEAR THIS-maybe some people have to "rely on computer
dating" to get dates-but not our members! M.S.I.S. people (mostly
college people, but ranging in age from 16 to 83) don't have trouble
getting dates-they're just more discriminating people supplementing
the usual hit-or-miss methods of finding "really special" dates by
vastly expanding the number of appropriate people available to them.
6. YES-we are a luxury-and we exist for the sharp, discriminating
person who wants a lot out of life, and a lot out of a date!
7. SO-if vou're a
