An odd little film from the Czech Republic focusing on a young man’s appointment at a rail station and his experiences there during the Nazi occupation.

From first impressions the film appears to be a comedy, albeit a black one. Milos tells us of his doomed forefathers and the amusing ways they met their demise; and this is followed by his first interactions with the somewhat motl... read more

"L'Oscar a miglior film straniera non ha impedito a questo gioiellino di finire dimenticato. Tante tematiche sfiorate - la guerra, l'amore, l'adolescenza - tutti trattati con la leggerezza di un'ironia amarognola e naive che rendono adorabile questo dramma. 7/10"

He is clearly a fish out of water but he’s keen to do well and become a man.

His sweet relationship with a young woman is convincing and heartfelt, but things take a much darker turn when he cannot perform sexually and he tries to take his own life shown in quite a graphic way for the time and the genre. From then the story loses interest and falls into su” read more
