Closely Observed Trains

Part of the Senior Selections Season


A real charmer from the heyday of the Czech New Wave. Despite being set during the German occupation, it is totally immersed in the pubescent problems of Milos, who takes up his first job as an apprentice railway platform guard with the anti-social resolve to do as little work as possible while others slave. A wonderfully funny observational drama about a sleepy little backwater depot where nothing ever happens, but where there is a whole universe of frustration, eroticism, adventure and romance.
