The film displays both Miloš Forman's ironic observational perspective and his ambition to understand the New World. It's fascinating to see how the film deals with the experience of the mutual bewilderment of the different generations. This experience is certainly not free from tension. And at the end of the film, the world is turned upside down a little.
Taking Off is unquestionably an auteur film, and was not a financial success, but it did win the Jury Prize at Cannes and served as a springboard for Forman to work on larger productions.
