Directed by Jirí Menzel. 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, this Academy Award™-winner is a masterpiece of human observation and one of the best-loved films of the Czech New Wave. B/W. In Czech with subtitles. 1966. 1h33m.
