Closely Watched Trains

Jiří Menzel Czechoslovakia, 1966

At a village railway station in occupied Czechoslovakia, a bumbling dispatcher’s apprentice longs to liberate himself from his virginity. Oblivious to the war and the resistance that surrounds him, this young man embarks on a journey of sexual awakening and self-discovery, encountering a universe of frustration, eroticism, and adventure within his sleepy backwater depot. Wry and tender, Academy Award™-winning _Closely Watched Trains_ is a masterpiece of human observation and one of the best-loved films of the Czech New Wave.
